Liked this tiny gem. The volunteer was sweet and helpful and this gave some interesting information even with the little area. The ship is so cool.
Cute little museum that starts with a short film about the history of life saving on the ocean. The museum is small but interesting. Some objects have a number and you can get more information by calling a special number and punching in the item number.
