This museum is very good. There are a lot of things even though it is not a large space. It is self guided which we like so we can take our time and read all the information things.

They have a lot of cool artifacts and stories during your visit. The displays are fantastic. School trips are a great way to introduce this kind of thing to children; and even us adults enjoyed the tour.

Next Summer, it would be much improve for H.Lee White Marine Museum, therefore the light house museum will be the grand opening to the publics. Last few years ago, U.S. Coast Guard donated the old light house to the H. lee White Marine Museum and they still work on the old light house.

Great local museum to spend a couple of hours. A lot of local history about Oswego and its harbor. Lake Ontario history. A tug boat that can be toured. Knowledgeable staff to answer any questions.

A great museum of maritime history for you to visit. Two floors with stairs. There are a lot of different exhibits to see. Once you are done inside, go to the LT-5 tug and the derrick and go onboard to visit those too. A nice way to spend part of your day.
