  • 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.
