We loved looking around in the museum. Reading the history and even demonstrations on how to tie nautical knots!!! The kids will love this museum. You can look through the periscope to see the different currents in the water.

This was a fun little museum. It had a scavenger hunt for same kids to find stuff. Then when the kids find them all they get a prize. It is also air conditioned so you can cool off after the park that's next door!

Nice maritime museum with several displays of local historical value. You can look through the periscope for a view around town and across the river.
