Little gem at the end of the boards, a great place to spend an hour or so. Informative enough for older kids, but has fish tanks and an interactive play room for younger ones. Worth the price!

My family visited the Life-Saving Station Museum one morning in August, and we all enjoyed it. It is small, but it packs a lot of information in just a little space. My 6-year-old grandson played the game and won a shark's tooth, which delighted him....More
