This place was great! We had a tour guide named Dan who was excellent. Very informative. A lot of great information about the area and the various sea captains that lived there. 15 dollars for 3 adults and 3 kids. Highly recommend

I found this museum very interesting especially if you get a docent who brings it to life for you. Interesting portraits and stories of the different captains and their wives. Proclamations by Abraham Lincoln and James Madison on display.
