Visited Museum as part of Cranberry Festival. Well set up on 2 floors with small gift shop. Well worth one visit. We combined it with visit to cranberry bog to watch harvest which was free and fun learning experience.

Taking in the actual harvest of a cranberry bog was great fun and so educational. The workers and the docent on site were very friendly and fun to talk with. The two women at the check out counter in the gift shop didn't seem to have much info on the Cranberrian Festival for that it was widely advertised. The museum... More

We lucked out and got to see them harvesting some Cranberries! Very interesting. The Museum is small but full of very interesting equipment and pictures. Very informative. You are able to take a self guided walking tour of the bogs.

The museum was ok but for me, the actual farm was the most interesting as you got to see an actual ocean spray cranberry farm up close.

Fun small museum to walk through along with a gift store. The cranberry fields were growing during our visit. Would like to return during harvest.

The bog isn't huge but enough to give you an Idea. The difference between dry and wet harvesting is interesting - giant suction machines etc. it is very informative. Volunteers manage and operate the farm. We bought cranberry oil lotion which is so rich feeling. We also got candy, soap, preserves And cranberry mustard. I can hardly wait to try... More

One afternoon of our beach vacation had drizzle which gave us an opportunity to take in the Cranberry Museum. The staff person gave us a short overview of the history of cranberry farming in the area and then we looked at a variety of displays that showed how cranberry farming was done in the "olden days" vs. now. We also... More

Have you ever wondered where cranberry juice comes from? All your questions will be answered here! Both inside and outside displays, so you can be entertained even if it is raining.
