A really great collection of Coast Guard artifacts. I had a one on one guided tour by one of volunteers. A hour should be sufficient to see all the exhibits. The models and model makers are outstanding!

Having visited for the second time in the past 10 years you could see that additions have been made and that those working really care about the museum. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Will visit again in the future.

A small two story building filled with numerous artifacts and history of the Coast Guard. The guide taught us very well about the history of the organization, past and present. We enjoyed the hour spent learning more about the Coast Guard.
