“Interesting and Free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This place is pretty interesting with many things to see. Didn't know if the kids would enjoy it but as it turned out, they did. Located by the lift bridge and admittance is free.

“Ships!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

It was fun to watch the ships come in! We timed it perfectly. We also really enjoyed looking at all the old shipwreck items and learning from the employees wealth of knowledge.

“Always informative.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I attended a private event and enjoyed the displays as always. The displays have changed since my last visit, and it is nice to see the constant updating.
