Small and quaint museum with a lot of figurines of light houses. Some interesting pieces of light house hardware and a full sized rescue boat with colonial mannequin.

Worth a visit. You'll learn a ton about light houses and their history. If you are lucky, Jim, one of the guides will share his enthusiasm about the museum, its history, its future, and of course the light houses!
