Extremely interesting for a small museum

Very friendly staff. A must if you're a history buff. I find small local museums like this just a treat.

This more of a research area than a museum.It had not very many things to look at,but it had a very large research area.I would think twice about going back here again. I feel it was a waste of money to visit this museum.

While I agree with the previous reviewers who found the little museum a bit limited in value, I hope that anyone who has ancestry in Queens County will ensure that they spend a few hours in this little research gem. The staff are extremely helpful and pleasant. The research room is a nice size and the tables and chairs comfortable.... More

Went to Museum to see their "Privateer" ship. It is just a replica of the forward portion of a privateer. It is jammed in the middle of a very cluttered exhibit space.

Totally loved the Privateer experience. I earned my Letter of Marque. Loved and enjoyed all the other exhibits especially the Mi'kmaq artifacts and exhibit. Totally recommend you take your kids here. And they have a great Tickle Trunk!

This has a lot of the privateer history. They have part of a real boat and lots of historical stuff. We learned a lot about the privateers and pirates and all.

We enjoyed this museum with lots of history of Liverpool, the privateers, and the way of life in bygone days. Impressive display of native tools and artifacts. A great account of bygone days in the writing of Simeon Perkins. Beautiful furniture on display, you can walk onto a boat and imagine what it must have been like going to sea... More
