My friend and I stopped here on our way North. It's right by the harbour and it's payment by donation. It's worth the stop. We both enjoyed our visit.

I was in town for the giant Rubber Duck and stopped into the museum. It was open to the public (free), but I'm not sure if it normally is. They had informative staff, and fascinating local rail and marine history.
