  • Wow. What an eye opener. This man and family were very busy. This historical site has so much information available. Lots to see and read. A definite check it out!
  • Worth a stop, very informative. They should do something about controlling the echo and sound. Poor design. Too bad you can't tour the home.
  • Nice view and informative. Worth the stop if you're passing by but I wouldn't go out of my way just to see it
  • Informative displays and eye opening exhibits. Silver Dart and Hydrofoil displays are must see.
  • Great museum. Worth the trip
