We had a great time here for a friends wedding reception. The food and views were really great! It was neat that you could enjoy all the museum surroundings while you were celebrating. Not sure who the band was but they pleased us all.

The Museum is quaint and open to public for review. Children may enjoy but mostly for an adult viewing.

A must see on your visit to town, on the list for "you have to do here". If you love the water, you'll love this place.
