  • It was a rainy day and we wanted to take in some history and indoor activities. Stopped by this Guard Station. The sign said it was open 24/7, but it was closed without explanation. 
  • Very rude staff of women. An older gentleman took us on a tour and he was knowledgeable and friendly however the old women and one slightly younger women who contributed no knowledge but much unprofessionalism. They need more actual veterans or intelligent people who know and appreciated this place.
  • A detailed history of a bygone era. If you're a history buff and was previously in or is in the US Coast Guard this is a cool place to visit. Memorabilia and photos from a time when the USCG was The Lifesaving Service. The building itself reminds me of my old station in NC: Oregon Inlet.. (the old one under the dunes...south of the bridge.)
  • Nice place, but you ought to pay 4 bucks for each person!
  • highly receommended
  • This place is filled with history with gorgeous photos. Awesome to learn about nautical stuff.
