Very nice collection of historical artifacts and good explanations of what's what. Georgetown was an important port town since the earliest colonial days. Docent Mary knows absolutely everything and tells it a succinct, entertaining and refreshing manner.

The museum is a must see. The facility has many great stories, artifacts, and atmosphere. We really enjoyed the view from the top floor. Don’t let the free admission full you.....they offer a lot to see.
