A great place to catch up on the Central Coast's waterfront history. There is many exhibits and a theater that plays 1 hour documentaries; this museum has been funded by local residents who are proud, and care to educate.
Great place for adults and kids. A interactive game, lots of boats and boating history. Nominal entry fee. Free when they have art exhibits. Call ahead for free day schedule. On wharf/boat harbor. Plenty of restaraunts.
This was a great place for my out of town guest who was a retired Coast guard! Lots of great info & awesome view!

For a small museum I found this one very interesting, instructive and kid friendly.
