  • This is a must see location in Crescent City! My wife and I visited on a whim during our two day trip to the area, and we were skeptical when we arrived. We were only able to spend ~30 minutes inside the building--we arrived just before closing--, but we were able to see many of the wonderful exhibits. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about the artifacts and literature that is kept there. Don't miss this place if you come into town.
  • Our local museum is a must see ... Wether your local or from out of town.
  • Super interesting museum! I had trouble leaving - too much to see. Well kept and welcoming staff! Had to leave since the tour bus was departing. C.G. Lieutenant's uniform, old radio equipment, 18 foot lighthouse lens (see where the sun shining on lens thru window burned the wall!) Old jail upstairs!
  • It is a awesome beach
