  • Lived here 20 years and finally went to this museum. I am so glad that I did. Full of artifacts and run by some very experienced and friendly people. If you like history, this museum is great.
  • The museum is well laid out. I wish I'd had more time. I will come back the next time I'm in the area.
  • The volunteers at the museum really helped us understand the history of the area.
  • Great local history, friendly volunteers. No set admission charge, instead leave a donation. Lots of local history programs throughout the year.
  • Well worth the visit. Great staff, nice museum, interesting. Nice, quiet break from beach activities. Good for families as well as adults.
