i agree it was a lot more than I expected. coupled with a very nice 'standard' museum area, the site buildings preserve the functions of the big shipbuilding yard that once was here building the largest wooden schooners ever built in America. You see the size of the timbers, the amazing assembly techniques, and the antiquated but quite competent tools they had to use. The crowning glory in my opinion is the amazing steel sculpture? in the full size of those schooners...right on the slipway site where they were actually built. This was truly an impressive addition to this site and we will always remember it.
