  • This place was filled with all sorts of interesting items ranging from ancient fossils to an antique fire truck! Visitors are offered a scavenger hunt list which really encourages interaction throughout the relatively small museum.
  • Seeing Misty & Stormy was like a visit back to childhood, & the history on Chincoteague was fascinating too. Thank you!
  • Misty was always so dear to my heart since I was a kid, to see her here today made my day. I felt like a kid again :) I was also able to share the experience it with my kids!
  • Neat exhibits including an old horse-drawn fire engine!
  • Incredible gem of a museum. Wonderfully arranged history of the Island and it's inhabitants, their livlihood of seafood and poultry.
