  • What a little gem! What this museum lacks in size is made up for in character and the presentation by the museum doscent who is a native with great stories to tell. She brings the town and the museum to life. Free but donations are welcome and after her presentation- you want to give. Great quick stop if you have a little time to kill.
  • What's a nice place to learn about the history of Greenport. The museum staff lady was amazingly friendly and informative. The exhibits were nicely displayed. We had a fun hour walking around and discovering the history of the city. The location is also easily accessible as you walk around the downtown. The blacksmith workshop is also part of the museum and the blacksmith was kind enough to explain the process to us as he worked molding an old horseshoe into a heart shaped gizmo.
  • Bug Light tour was very enjoyable.
  • Had such an amazing time, learned so much about the history of greenport and how the museum came to be! Tracy was so interesting to listen to and made it such a unique experience! I got some serious Marvelous Mrs. Maisel vibes from her humor & story telling style and I loved it! :) The museum is free but donations are welcome and I highly recommend checking out and supporting this local gem! 💙
  • Nice little museum with exhibits and local stories. The guide is friendly and very knowledgeable about the local history. It's a small facility, so you won't spend too much time there but it is interesting.
