well worth the stop. Original lighthouse lens is here. Historical information is very educational. On the way to the Refuge, well worth the stop.

“Learn about the Island of Chincoteague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Excellent staff. Wonderful displays and lots of fun. One of the most enjoyable museum experiences I have ever had. Hope to get back to Chincoteague with my grandsons. Can't say enough positive things. I learned a lot about the history of Chincoteague and the Eastern Shore. Please thank the staff. Tina Sties
