Step back in time to the turn of the century with a visit to the House of Refuge Museum at Gilbert’s Bar.

The museum exhibits lifesaving equipment used to rescue shipwrecked sailors, and showcases the Keeper’s quarters circa 1904.

You can take a self-guided tour at any time, or schedule a guided tour for yourself and a group.


The naturally rugged and scenic location of the House of Refuge at Gilbert’s Bar has served as the inspiration for a number of paintings and photographs.

The late local artist Howard Schafer was commissioned to paint the House of Refuge as it looked after it was built in 1876. Limited edition giclees of this print are available in our gift shop, as well as a variety of gifts, books, souvenirs, photos and artwork.
