We are pleased were able to visit and hope you enjoyed the exhibits. We are happy to have been on your list of things to see!
Myself and my family spent a couple hours here. Exhibits were great and there was a guide if you wanted to go on the boat. The guide was very knowledgeable. Lots of interesting stuff to see about the local history.
