Definitely worth the visit while you're in Seaton. We spoke to the curator who was very courteous and had some great stories about the area. Will be taking some family members along when they next visit!

A little gem at the top of Fore Street. Free admission. A lovely place. So much information on the history of Seaton. The curator is a very knowledgable elderly gentleman who can answer questions on anything Seaton.
