We found it worth the visit.

Plan to spend a couple of hours here. Great history of the area. Reasonable rates. Several antique and shopping nearby. Great walking area as well.

Open sign was out but door was locked. Staff had put out the open sign as we drove by, but the Museum was not open. We tried serveral gates but no luck.

My husband and I stopped in as we were wandering around town. Two gentlemen were seated inside and welcomed us like we were regulars! I hate to say that I completely forgot one man's name but one was Richard Scarabin and we immediately took a shine to them both. They were helpful and knowledgeable about the area and eager to...

This museum is a must while visiting in Apalachicola. Whether you are a boating enthusiast or not, you will enjoy this museum. The displays were varied and interesting and historically correct. The pictures portray the history of Apalachicola and the surrrounding areas. They offer a number of boating options if you are so inclined. We did not have time to... More

My family and I enjoyed the museum very much, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend stopping here if you visit the area! There is not an entrance fee, but if you would like to donate $5 it is very much appreciated.

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
