This is a must see at the beach. The original beach house is worth the visit. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful.

The displays change often, but this is definitely a must see. There is no fee to enter, but they do accept donations. We probably spent about an hour there. If you have an hour to spare you should definitely stop by.
