We spent a couple of hours at this lovely museum and walked around the grounds. The exhibits were interesting and very well done. Excellent if you want to know about the history of the area and its indigenous peoples.

The representation of the ships, the history of the first colonizers, the illustrations and the window view are amazing. It worth buying a coffee and sitting a few minutes just to see the ocean.

It's a good small museum, there are some interesting things to see and very well decorated. There are some missing pieces in murals and a very outdated 3D giant animation of whales that could quickly and easily be replaced. There are some guided tours, but...More
