  • This was a superb museum. Excellent renderings of culture, history, and milestones on the isle. Clean, well displayed and adequately marked. Personal and collective in nature at once. Hard to find well documented local lore and history like this. Worth stopping to see - rain or shine. Oh, and I almost forgot, Misty is here. Yes, the stuffed Misty is "in the house". So, it's a gotta see for your young pony lovers - all the books are available on site, too.
  • There is seriously enough stuff crammed in this museum to fill 4 buildings. So much info about the history of the island, the ponies, the wildlife, everything. They give you a scavenger hunt to look for and boy it can be hard to find everything but the staff does offer hints if you need any. They have a small touching area for kids but I am seriously glad that I left my kiddos at home for this one. There is so much stuff to look at there is no way they could have kept their hands to themselves. I actually went in looking for a very specific Chincoteague magnet but didn't find much of a gift shop so I went elsewhere after a quick tour. Like I said, SO MUCH INFO. Almost overload, but it's a fun look into what makes the island so special.
  • Historical Sea themed artifacts and lovely photos, great place to check out.
  • A must stop if you are on the island. Lots of interesting facts and who doesn't love Misty and Stormy.
  • Very good on historical events.
