Great place to spend the afternoon either with the family, solo or as a couple. Be careful of ticks and poison ivy on the hiking trails.

It was a nice find on scenic route 6A. Interesting musueum with both stuffed animals, and a small acquarium. I found the tidal pool especially fascinating. They have guided tours for children. Also special events such as watching them work on an actual beehive. I understand they have fascinating paths down to the marsh, but I didn't have time. This... More

The museum is full to the brim with whale bones, live turtles, and taxidermied birds of all kinds! They host a number of learning experiences throughout the year and have a great camp for kids in summer. There is also a fantastic walking trail to the beach, just be cautious of the tides.

Went on a hike to the sea, passed by an osprey nest with chicks in it. Saw other birds and chipmunks. Went inside and made turtles and put wooden puzzles together. Saw the aquariums. Natural history exhibits as well. It was awesome for the kids.
