My boyfriend and I took a spur of the moment visit to this museum today, and it was fantastic. We were surprised that it was so empty. This museum is a unique, interesting and beautiful place that more people should take advantage of seeing. It is a walk through the rich history of everything Maritime this country has done, been...
