This was the perfect way to spend an hour on a cloudy day. Lots of food, shops, and ferries in the neighborhood. My five year old loved the scavenger hunt; was very engaged! I found the QAR wreckage fascinating!

The museum entry is free but they do ask for donations. It is well worth donating to this small town history museum.

It's a small indoor museum, I did not see any dogs when we were there. I'm thinking it would not be appropriate to bring dogs in.
