It was declared British Museum of the Year and has won an award by the Society for the Interpretation of Britain’s Heritage. The award-winning harbour-side building is designed in sympathy with other buildings on the quay is an extension of the town's railway station.

  • Manx kippers are supposed to be the best in the world, and even if you're not personally fond of smoked herring, don't you know someone who deserves a special smoky, fishy delivery back home? Moore's Kipper Yard will be happy to help you post a kipper-gram to a lucky friend.
