Lovely historic tower. Parking is free here, which is rare in this country so come on out! We were there the last day of September 2019 and there was construction repair work going on at parts of the tower but it was still open for the public. The diorama inside the front door is very special, and then the narrow spiral steps up to the top are lined with some historic and educational tidbits. Up on the very top you are outside and able to see a wonderful panorama including views of the Sea and ships and seabed farming. There is no cost to look thru the mounted telescope, another added bonus. At the time we were there we enjoyed a parade of old restored cars on a drive-by, so great!
