  • We really enjoyed this place. There were five children and they all loved this place. In fact, we went back twice. Nice exhibits but even nicer volunteers. They were so friendly and taught us so much!...  more »
  • There is not much to see inside the small building, actually the garden area which is also small is half the attraction. Donation is the cost of entry and I would say that is all it is worth 
  • So, this is a smallish museum in appearance but loaded with fun, educational and factual displays, examples, well-written material and friendly staff. This superb museum houses an unrivaled collection...  more »

  • Stopped by, but they were closed. They had a picnic table outside so we decided to eat lunch. The owner stopped by and gave me a little tour of the place! Didn't expect him to at all, but once he found out I've never been he seemed eager to show me. Most people aren't this nice. Will be stopping by at a later time to let my son explore and to support them at the gift store. :) thanks a bunch!
  • Wonderful interpretive center and museum. They have tons of info and materials to check. In my first visit I was expecting to spend 30 minutes and it was way too short. Volunteers take care of it although I feel like a little high the fee to pay but it's worth a visit.
  • WOW just WOW!!! 10 stars out of 5. Such a great interp Center. One of the better ones that I've been to. I could happily spend weeks of my life here.
  • A lot to see and learn here. The staff is friendly!
  • Very interesting place with many displays of the variety of natural and man made structures at ocean shores. This place has fun for the kids and adults alike.
