On a whim, I talked my BF into making this delightful stop. The museum is one of a kind. Artifacts from World War 11 and even earlier times line shelves and poke out of corners. They even preserved the bow of a once famous ship.
As others mentioned, the view at the top of the Lighthouse is worth the narrow, 69 steps. If you like American History and are in the area, you won't want to miss this attraction. We did this on a cloudy day and could still see for miles. Parking on the street was no problem and the museum is accessible via ramp or steps.
I learned that the lighthouse out in the water is in the process of major restoration by a private owner and may even turn into a unique Bed & Breakfast. It's everything SaintLexi mentioned in her review. On a poor person's budget, this was affordable, interesting, and breathtaking!!
