“Cute!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

This was a great stop during the rain storm. It was small but cute. I wouldn't run our of my way to go here though. It's great if you are trying to kill time.

“Good if you are interested in the Coast Guard!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

This is a fairly small museum, but with lots of Coast Guard history & memorabilia. Well worth a stop if you are a Coast Guard person. We went as our lighthouse ticket got us in free !!!

“Could be Better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Since we also got the lighthouse tour with the same ticket, I really shouldn't complain, but I would have liked to see more artifacts from the day to day life of the coast guard members who lived here

“Worth It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We were surprised when we purchased tickets to the lighthouse on St. Simons Island that the Maritime Center was included as well. The lighthouse alone was worth going through as the views from the top are wonderful. The house was closed for renovations while we were there but would definitely consider this once again when the house is open and can be viewed. We decided to stop at the Maritime center after viewing the lighthouse. It does not take a tremendous amount of time to go through but is definitely worth the trip. It is set up in a way that I believe all ages will enjoy it. The gentlemen who talked to us when we entered the building was very informative and obviously enjoyed being there. It was definitely worth seeing.

“Well worth the ticket price! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

I agree with the last poster. Everyone was knowledgeable and friendly. It was well worth the $10 to visit both locations and support these pieces of history.
