Rented kayaks here, and it was an excellent experience. Ted took a lot of time to show us a map, suggest a route, etc. We did not explore the museum itself, just rented kayaks, and it was the highlight of our weekend.

Like most of Apalachicola's museums this is not large but packed with old photos and historical information about this wonderful town's past. I'm a little reluctant to express how much my wife and I like this place because of its increasing popularity. But, if in town the Maritime Museum is worth the $5.00 entrance fee if you have any interest... More

You need to stop by and learn of the local history. They also have boat tours, Eco, bay and sunset. The boat building demonstrations looked interesting but the builders had the day off.

Apalachicola Maritime Museum is a small but interesting place to visit while in town. It is a self-guided tour (book given at check in to tell about exhibits) that takes as little as 30 minutes to over an hour depending on how much you read at each stop along the tour. I found that you probably would do just as... More

We took our family on an eco cruise here on their very large pontoon boat. The price was a bit high but we were interested in this beautiful area. The trip was up the Apalachicola River and some of the smaller creeks and we saw some amazing wildlife and scenery but the best part of the outing was provided by... More

A nice little museum. Not a whole lot to it. I think the best part was the waterfront boat tour. Well worth the visit. Again, knowledgeable staff. Nice tour. There are several different types of tours.

Toured all museum taking time to read about the history of Apilachicola, and its Navy is the days of old. If you like the navy and boating history, you will like this museum.

This is a very good place to start your visit of the town and surrounding area. Wish we had had time to take the water tour. Would recommend spending more that 4 hours in town.
