Nice place. We visited during an event and will be returning when things are less hectic. Looks like there is a lot to see and spend some time learning of the history of the area.

We stopped by well before the museum opened because we were on our way out of town, but still got to see a large variety of sailing vessels, accompanied by interpretive signs. Lovely location. Next trip we will get there during business hours.

This best part of this tour was taking the boat out on the river! Seeing Reedville by boat getting the history of the area by a local was awesome. Would recommend a stop here any day

The Fisherman's Museum in Reedville is worth a visit. It has a great display of local fishing life and diorama's of life in Reedville. They also have a full size replica of John Smith's boat that sailed the Chesapeake Bay.

This is a very interesting place to visit with knowledgeable staff to answer questions and talk about the local history. I especially found the display on the traveling Show Boats that used to visit the area. Never knew much about their history or popularity.

We spend a lovely morning visiting this tiny gem. The museum has several buildings: the museum itself which houses the history of the Town. It also has a great feature on the original floating show boats that went up and down that river that were...More
