  • Great historic spot. Very interesting. Very good tour guide.
  • Nice folks and very informative. Great Maritime stuff to see and learn about.
  • The staff are personal and knowledgeable. A different experience each visit, as they have a rotating exhibit. A favorite place to visit!
  • Had a great guided tour by a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. Learned a lot about the history of the building as well as the era in sailing surrounding the clipper ships. Highly recommend the guided tour as opposed to a self-guided one. Our tour was to last a half hour but our guide went on for over an hour. :)
  • Not big but historical. It is a nice little museum with lots of historical information.
