We visited here as the pick of museums was difficult, but we only had time for one. We loved Simons town and the history of the naval dog, just Nuisance. We also visited his grave. The museum was run by volunteers I think, and they were so lovely and talked us through various items there. We spent a good while looking through the museum and bought quite a few gifts from the shop. Well worth a visit.

Was looking for the naval museum but started here. Small museum, with a wide variety of unusual exhibits - everything from Antarctic explorations to Naval pets.
I discovered the storey of Just Nuisance here & just loved it!

We enjoyed looking here at all the local history of how the town became important and became a naval town. There was no charge but you were asked to give a donation.

The museum is lovely and offers a great history of the area. The exhibits are interesting and the curators are really friendly and willing to answer any questions. A great stop in this little town
