We misstimed a visit to the Arconti museum and turned up a full two hours before opening time. Amazingly, the owner opened his doors and welcomed us anyway and proceeded to walk us around his fabulous collection of interesting American memorabelia - explaining everything enthusiastically and with great knowledge. Definitely something for all the family and well worth a visit!

We stopped in on a quiet day to see this museum and got a personal tour from the owner's daughter. Very interesting! No particular theme except American artifacts and memorabilia - from currency and peace pipes to Star Wars figures and original drawings from Charlotte's Web. Behind the museum is a cemetery with graves dating back to the early 1800s.... More

See up close some extraordinary memorabilia from the Civil War era to a 1960's Harley with side car. A real letter from a Titanic survivor, and actual drawings from the Illustrations of Charlotte's Web. Kids will love the Star Wars life size figures. Put together beautifully and very informative, you're bound to learn something new. The owners take great pride... More

An ecclectic and fascinating collection the whole family will enjoy. Owner and curator Mick Arconti is passionate about history and gives an engaging tour. The museum has something for everything, from early currency to pop culture. This is a wonderful alternative for families who have had enough beach and mini-golf!
