The museum is set-up like a Loyalist home but has a video room, shell collection, genealogy records & a gift shop. My favorite parts are the old photos of the locals and the harbour especially with the sea planes landed just outside the lighthouse. The museum is run by volunteers and is usually manned but if you ask at Ebb Tide across the lane, they can help find someone. They ask for a small entrance fee which is well worth it. The latest addition is the memorial garden just up the hill and on the ocean. A wonderful place full of colorful plantings and a beachside gazebo.
