This museum offers a great look at the history of life on the peninsula. Amazing that such a gem does not have an admission fee--only donations. Definitely worth the stop.

There is something for all. My kids love the fire truck and phone booth. The museum is very well kept and is run by volunteers which is wonderful.

I think it is open May 1 through Oct 31. What I remember is old railroad, fire department, news paper clippings, stuffed wild life, jail. I've been twice and enjoyed it both times. Maybe you could google more info.
