Tea and scones is a treat at the museum. The museum's curator and volunteers work hard to ensure quality exhibits that engage the local population as well as visitors. It's a wonderful place to visit to learn about the area.

We popped in for a quick view of the Noden Causeway exhibit but did not visit the entire museum. The exhibit was well done - Museum offers open washrooms for those roaming downtown and a cool place to take a break.

Reminds us of the participation of local residents in the past two world wars and their sacrifices. Faces old and new. Faces never met and faces familair.
