REturned this year for the 6th time. Love the museum and its exhibits. It's so accessible and informative. The gift shop is small but the choices are nice. Would recommend as a "must see" if you are in the area.

I was just checking to see what was in the town. I came upon this museum. It looked very small, but I took a look anyway. It was much more. There is much here.

Nice place. We visited during an event and will be returning when things are less hectic. Looks like there is a lot to see and spend some time learning of the history of the area.

This small museum is well appointed with wonderful historical artifacts, photographs and dioramas of the commercial fishing industry especially that surrounding Menhaden. There is a nice gift shop complete with cookbooks,...More

We stopped by well before the museum opened because we were on our way out of town, but still got to see a large variety of sailing vessels, accompanied by interpretive signs. Lovely location. Next trip we will get there during business hours.

This best part of this tour was taking the boat out on the river! Seeing Reedville by boat getting the history of the area by a local was awesome. Would recommend a stop here any day
