Display Overview
The museum is housed in a former Coastguard Station overlooking the sea, and the first floor is reinstated to the 1930/40's era with some equivalent modern equipment which is manned by members of the National Coastwatch Institution. The ground floor displays feature photographs and prints and objects illustrating the story of sea rescue and the local lifeboat from 1811 to the present. Other displays feature the development of local amenties and services, particularly the building of local hotels.
