This museum is right on the front and gives an insight to the RNLI and particular the most successful member of the RNLI to date. There are lots of activities to do which children will appreciate

We went in to get out of the cold and because it was free. I think it is aimed at children more than adults and apart from the boat on display not much else of genuine interest. We did make a donation.

Thank you so much for your review. It's great to hear from people who have enjoyed their time with us. I love the café upstairs too but unfortunately we can't take the credit as they are a separate business. Hopefully we'll see you again soon....More
