Walking through the seaport museum was like going back in time. The ships, the buildings, the characters. It was wonderful. We ate at a little outdoor cafe while there and the food was very good. All in all, a very enjoyable afternoon.
To what is must have been like for seamen in the 1800s docking to a small town. It is a recreation of a small town complete with stores for goods and ship supplies. Most buildings were manned and staff knowledgeable about what that buildings function...More

there were a few ships on display they were nice, there were a few buildings in the shipyard with some interesting info and seeing the mayflower 2. but thats about it. For the money, its not worth it i wouldn't spend the money again.
Historical exhibits, learn about whaling, building ships, see historic vessels, listen to chanteymen singing shanties. Lots of workshops like ropemaking, paint shop, blacksmithy, restoration of ships. Sail tours in the steamboat Sabino. Friendly volunteers.

If you only have 2 - 3 hours with wheelchair, head to the seaport museum. There is much more to do and see. We spent 2 days seeing everything but my mother is handicapped and walks very slowly with a cane. Hope that helps to clear up what
