The Maritime Museum is housed on board the lightship Guillemot. There are two museums in one, since the lightship is the last Irish Lights vessel which is complete with all its cabins containing the original furniture, generations and fittings. It also houses many original and unusual artefacts. From the Bridge Desk both the Book and the Barrels lights can be seen and there are excellent views of the Saltee Islands. Below deck there are many model ships, a very extensive collection of pictures, and many sea antiques. There is also a Royal National Lifeboat Institute display covering the history of the local station.
