The two floor gallery includes the history of ship building, lighthouses and some of their keepers, ferries that have served the island, and the history of the first settlers of the Island. Commercial fishing from purse seining, weir fishing, scallop and ground fish dragging, and lobster fishing are all explained with informational model displays. The gallery has items from the many vessels that have been lost at the sea. This gallery also houses the spectacular Second Order Fresnel Lighthouse lens from Gannet Rock Lighthouse, and tells the story of a Grand Mananer who, because of his ingenuity, helped to win WWII.
