  • Lots of parking, but if you don't want to walk far it is best to arrive early. Great view that gets even better as you ascend the stairs. (There is an elevator too). The museum has an enormous collection of shells and even though we didn't eat at the restaurant, it looked pretty nice. The view from the outside patio is really stunning.
