The shellfish museum was a bit hard to find at first but just keep driving down to the water and you will find it. I understand it’s been closed for a few years but it opened again in mid June this year. A small location...More

This was our midway point on a 2 week road trip. We also attended the Tyne Valley Oyster fest and parade. The museum is small, but interesting.

Hate to agree with one of the reviews below, but indeed, this "museum" is not worth it. Exhibits are old, place is tired-looking, and staff really don't know much at all.
