  • Very much enjoyed our visit. Setting is great - lovely church. The lighthouse on the altar is striking - great idea. Had a guided tour by volunteer guide Michael. Very friendly informative tour. (And none of the silly theatrical condescending stuff you get with paid guides in larger institutions. Glad we said yes when offered.) Ticket price is very affordable.
  • Great museum for all ages. Lots of stuff for kids to see and play with. Highly recommend!
