Visit the many museums for a chance to step back in time and enjoy the stories of our fascinating past.

Experience our unique history and culture from the early days of mining to the amazing maritime history of windjammers and shipwrecks in maritime museums, the ingenuity of early settlers and their inventions to modern day agriculture, visit the plane of an aviation pioneer or absorb yourself in a military museum.
