“Interesting Museum”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

We stopped in for about 2 hours one afternoon and really enjoyed the show and exhibits. I'm not really into ships/boats but my husband loved it. I did find it very informative and I enjoyed learning new things. $13 bucks a person - not sure if that is a great deal, but we were willing to pay it.

“Great place, Roll on Columbia”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

The museum looks small but is actually quite big inside. Excellent displays and a movie that is very informative. I learned a great deal in a short period of time. Well worth going to if you are in this area. Good for kids and adults.
