“Yo-ho!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

This sweet museum was a bit of a walk from the main area but not really that far. One is able to move from room to room and read the history of the island. A docent is at the main desk to answer any questions and make sure you saw everything! The children's pirate area was great fun even for grown-ups. If a school were to be there, it might get a bit crowded. WE are glad we made the stroll.

“Nicely done, very informative”

This is a small local museum with big museum standards. Well worth the visit! This has cell phone tours and is full of 8 Flags information.

“Quaint little museum geared towards kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Off the beaten path, this little museum is a great destination on a rainy day. It's not large, but it's well done, and there are some hands-on exhibits just for the kids.
