Family friendly museum, a full spectrum of ships, boats and history. We took a 9 yr old and 12 yr old, they enjoyed the boats, models and coloring. My husband really found the displays well made and very informative.

Wow! What a neat place! LOTS of ships to see and knots to try. Learned a lot as an adult. It's free, but they work/operate off donations as you exit.
