What a gem. This is a super little museum. Plenty of very interesting displays. You can spend 1/2 hour to 1/2 day in here. Great history of the area, from ship building to sugar and computing.

Great museum to visit. Staff friendly and the art collection is worth seeing. Shame it has shut for refurbishment but look forward to going again when it is back up and running.
