We had a negative experience with this place. We arrived there and tried to enter (OPEN sign was on the door). A rather unpleasant male blocked the door and informed me that though the sign said "OPEN," they were closed and that they had a special group coming and would not be opening to the public. Later in the afternoon... More

It was fun for the whole family. The fish, the shows and all the thing to look at were both entertaining and educational. We stayed there for about 3 hours and enjoyed every minute. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. We all learned a lot

Those who like to see items from the past relating to Greenport being a seaport and the history of that will enjoy a visit. Not all of us are history buffs so this is for those that do get a kick out of it.

Glad to have our Maritime heritage available. Not that much preserved as should be. Hoping to get out this spring for a visit.

We planned our whole vacation around this trip. It was easy to find the Museum, and the boat trip started out on time. There was a lot of fog, and we were concerned that the trip might be cancelled. They assured us the trip had only been cancelled once in 14 years of being in operation. It does only go... More

The museum didn't open unti we were boarding our train to return to NYC...If the museum had been opened earlier we would have attempted to visit. We have been there several years ago and know it is worth revisiting

Every waterfront resort town has it's story and there is non better than Greenport's. Home to whaling ships at the turn of the century along with canneries, barges and shipyards. Greenport was also the North East center of "rum-running" during prohibition with deliveries going right into Claudio's docks. Check out the History Channel's episode on Greenport. I love the camera... More

Greenport Long Island is a delightful way to spend a weekend. Stroll through the streets and pop in and out of delightful shops. Stroll to the harbor and see all the big ships docked there and at Claudo's, ride on the old Grumman merry go round , stop by at Angella's shop for some delightful candy and browse at all... More

Bathrooms were not available to patrons. My family was told that the restroom was for employees only! We had small children and it was a Saturday. Really pushed their lighthouse cruises, which are exspensive. They seem to be in business for cruises only because it is not much of a museum.
