  • The place is a little hard to find because it isn't right on the street. It is behind the Oyster Bar on Waters Street. On the corner of Waters and Lawrence. The people are really nice. Took about an hour to view and read the exhibits. No charge but they do take donations.
  • Great local atmosphere. The artwork and the historical articles are outstanding. The museum works on donations and does a good job.
  • Free, well-done small museum. My son loved the model where he could make waves.

They have an awesome collection of boards and photos, the only problem is there isn't enough, it takes maybe 30 minutes to read and sewer everything...
  • Neat museum. Free (donations accepted). Kids enjoyed it. Super friendly. Video was awesome.
