Beautiful museum. Not just maritime items. Highly recommend. Only $5 for a family and it includes the lighthouse tour too. Be sure to check out the signs and artifacts outside behind the museum. A true gem.

Well done museum! For someone not interested in history, it was very fun to visit! Climbed the spiral stairs to the top of the lighthouse! Nice Christmas open house with cookies and hot cider!

This museum has something for everyone. There is plenty of information about the local area and its history, but the artifacts give a general glimpse into life in the past--from things like a switchboard to a moonshine still from the Prohibition era to a voting...More
