Modern decor with good staff but its administration now. The exhibits and Hall of Fame memorial are in a separate building.

I live with an avid fisherman and this has been on his list of places to visit for years. I went (reluctantly) and was very impressed with the exhibits and history. So much so that I recommend it to fisher men and women who may be traveling to the area.

This is the best Summer and Winter Break Camp. Lucky to have in our back yard. Lisa and Jo Jo are awesome. Don't forget to see the Turtle Hatchlings.

This place appears to be closed. The building still stands and an impressive steel sculpture of a sword fish can be seen outside.

If you are a fisherman and or interested in open water deep sea champion fishing don't miss this Museum...it's great. Filled with all manner of fishing equipment fishing boats and a history of deep sea tournament fishing. Don't miss it.

Thank Don L
