Small museum but excellent historical, well displayed exhibits. Great gift shop too. We really enjoyed our visit. Loved the wharf, felt like we stepped back in time. I highly recommend visiting, great place for kids too.

Can’t say enough about this museum. What a surprise! Informative and entertaining for all ages. Never concentrated or even gave a thought to maritime war in GA and other states. Gives information on both sides of the fight...who did what to whom, etc.
