Was a pleasant surprise. My sister and I visited and were not disappointed! We even found a picture of her children’s father among the items displayed. Great museum to visit!

This museum has wonderful exhibits that change often. It is a lovely find in a beach town. Really enjoyed the program for kids and the lovely little gift store. It is a nice walk through history.
