to call this a maritime museum is a flat out lie. the tour guide talked so softy we couldn't hear her. there was random pictures on the wall of ships that had nothing to do with the maritime history in palm beach, when we asked questions about them her response was " I don't know they were given to us"....

The maritime museum does well with what it has, which is usually very little. Then there are the events like when they get a tall ship, such as Lynx, to the area. I had the opportunity to sail on the Lynx (a remake of a War of 1812 era sailing vessel - see it http://www.privateerlynx.com/lynx.html). What an amazing experience. I... More

This quaint museum is right on the water with a great view of Palm Beach. They had some great maritime history on display for just an asking donation of $2. They are associated with the Maritime Museum on Peanut Island.

Located on Peanut Island, you have to take a bot there. Water taxis are available. The tour itself was pretty average, but being able to walk through President Kennedy's bunker from the Cuban missile crisis era was very interesting, and elevated my rating to "Very Good." We also saw manatees near the museum (not part of the tour).

My husband and I have been living in Singer Island for over 3 yrs, and go by Peanut Island on a daily basis. We finally decided to make our "tour" to the island this past weekend. What fun! We took a water taxi from the Riviera Beach Marina which in and of itself, was a nice start to our investigations... More

Getting to this museum is part of the fun ... our ferry ride took us by an interesting houseboat and allowed us a panoramic view of Singer Island. The Palm Beach Maritime Museum actually consists of tours of the John F. Kennedy Bunker and the 1930 Coast Guard Station which are located on Peanut Island as well as Currie Park... More

We've been living in West Palm Beach for a little over three years, but had never heard of the Palm Beach Maritime Museum. With guests visiting from out of town, it was the perfect excuse to venture out to Peanut Island to visit the Palm Beach Maritime Museum and the so-called "JFK Bunker". The Maritime Museum is housed in an... More
