The History Centre's collection and research support the changing displays at the Bay Discovery Centre.
The Centre also offers an information and reference service and openly welcomes enquiries from family historians, students, teachers and the general public.
Tours of historic interest, talks and information sessions are available as an occasional service or upon request.
The Centre is staffed by a part-time History Officer and a roster of generous volunteers.
