Don't ever book your wedding here. We ordered wine with dinner. No wine was served because there was no servers. Dishes weren't cleaned up after people ate. When asked about the wine they said no wine was ordered yet the frig was stocked with wine. Groomsmen had to cut and serve the wedding cake. No organization at all. Good thing... More

Really enjoyed this museum, which was both engaging and informative. The boats are beautiful, and the volunteer guides were really helpful. Much better than many larger museums!

The price of admission was included in the cost of a trip on the RMS Segwun. So we weren't expecting much. We were were wrong! The museum is exceptional of its kind. Narratives clearly told for young and old. The initial highlight was the boathouse itself that contained beautifully restored boats, mostly on loan by the lucky and generous owners.... More

We were pleasently suprised, with the items and the local history. Frankly we thought we would be in and out in 10 min, but were there for over an hour and a half. looking at the variety and style of the cedar strip boats was really quite a pleasure.
