I enjoyed the museum. Nice boat displays and good reviews of local history. Nice views and detail. Don't think very young children would like it. 3 floors and in AC. Adult cost 10 dollars. Closes at 430 most days. Not crowded.

We had a great time riding the sailboats. The crew were very informative and nice. My kids asked all kind of questions and they answered all of them. The Captain even let them steer the boat for a minute!

Big open building with lots of natural light and scenic vistas. Collection attractively displayed. Tons of local history, local maritime history, and artifacts to back it all up: full-sized boats, even! One gripe: Not all of the exhibits made sense to me. For example, there's...More
