Smaller than I expected but a nice wealth of information. Lots of records and mini replicas. Full uniforms with descriptions.

A really great collection of Coast Guard artifacts. I had a one on one guided tour by one of volunteers. A hour should be sufficient to see all the exhibits. The models and model makers are outstanding!

Lots of great information. Best to get tour with guide. Very knowledgeable guide (Phil) who was in the Coast Guard so had personal stories which added to the experience.

Having visited for the second time in the past 10 years you could see that additions have been made and that those working really care about the museum. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Will visit again in the future.
