Very small museum with free entry. Only 3 rooms....one has creepy stuffed penguins and birds. The main room is a brief history of the natives. The third room was a photo display of a shipwreck. Pop in if passing but dont go looking for this...More

It has some posts with English explanations but it all about human, native tribes and later invaders from Europe, but little about the nature of this land.

Interesting bird exhibits. Informative history about the region. Close to town and easy to spend an hour browsing.

Despite the catchy name, the museum has relatively little to offer beyond some local natural history and a bit about the colonial period. The building is impressive, and since it is right on the waterfront, handy to visit.

This is a simple and straightforward museum which tells an important story about the peoples, fauna and flora of the area. This museum is now an even more important local history resource in the light of the recent closure of the Yamana Museum.
