I went here on a tour and I thought it was interesting. The displays were impressive and you come away with a sense of the hard work fishermen have to do.

It was a rainy day so we thought we would hop on the CTA at our casino and kill a few hours here. We were pleasantly surprised. Two nice movies on the seafood industry and one on the devastation from Katrino. I would recommend going.
