We loved the fishing museum. Littering around reading up on local legends. Next door is the shipwreck museum too. Great way to pass the time if you're on a budget as it's free with donations, so give what you can afford.

hi. it will tight but you can get round only downside is I don't think you will be able to get up onto the boat that's inside the building.
