Interesting museum about the history of Greenport and area light houses. It's small so does not take much time.

The Museum does not live up to it's location within the historic and beautiful Greenport train depot. What you will find is a haphazardly curated mishmash. Common guys and gals on the museum board. You have the preeminent location. Step up to the task and...More

Another MUST SEE when visiting Greenport, lots of intriguing artifacts in this museum. Great photos, old details of Greenport's whaling past, a small aquarium tank, clean restroom. But check times when it is open. It is open more in the Summer than at other times.
