Didn’t look like anything! But wow inside was the real thing and they have real pride with their history. It is a must see. The Deadrise restaurant on the waterfront, killer sea food. Just my opinion from the Pacific Northwest .

First visit since being turned over to the NPS. Museum is in great shape with many interesting exhibits. Self-guided tour is laid out well. Excellent presentation and maintenance.

This museum is so well done, organized, clear, and full of beautiful displays. We participated in a walking tour, it was shorter than I thought it would be, but the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. No question was "silly". Great visit!

Discovered the museum via Trip Advisor and NPS websites. Amazed to discover no admission fee (please donate at the end... it'll be worth it). Conversion of the fortifications into the museum, proper, is excellent. The exhibits that walk the visitors from the early origins of...More
