Tucked between the Fireboat Firefighter Museum and the Greenport Railroad Museum of Long Island, this a great place to take the kids for brief look at some local maritime history. The museum is small enough to keep kids intrigued bore you hop on board one of their lighthouse cruises. A must if you're in the Greenport area. Check out their... More

It's located in the original train station now serving as the museum. There are items on ship design, far flung whaling, defense of the nation including the Nazi threat, lighthouse lights, and many other topics. Great story about a local restaurant owner whose seafaring life is a real saga of the seas. Good for those who enjoy poring over paraphernalia... More

Our trip to Long Island wouldn't be complete without the light house tour. Such fascinating history and to think they are privately maintained. A vital role in maritime history, these light houses were an adventure. I dont mind being on the waves, so we enjoyed sitting outside and getting sprayed occasionally by the sea mist. For those who prefer a... More

Another MUST SEE when visiting Greenport, lots of intriguing artifacts in this museum. Great photos, old details of Greenport's whaling past, a small aquarium tank, clean restroom. But check times when it is open. It is open more in the Summer than at other times.

The Seaport Museum has so much to offer. You can really see the enormity of what they do if you come during the Maritime Festival held in September. It will be September 25, 26 & 27th in 2015. The cruises are great, fun, informative and educational. If you are a lover of lighthouses, history, the water, and have an appreciation... More

This charming museum runs a number of differing lighthouse tours - if you are interested in lighthouses and their historical role, one of these tours is about as good as it gets. You get up close to many (apparently there are more lighthouses off the town of Southold, NY than anywhere else) and can get off at one - the... More

You can always dream. After walking around we had lunch at Claudio,s outside deck. The food and service were very good. Will deffinitly made a return... More
