A free - donations requested - of a fireboat. Docents are very informative and take you to engine room, main deck, and bridge. Allowed my child to sit in captain's seat and ring bell. Recommended for history lovers, very informative.

The museum was a discovery during our walking afternoon in Greenport. None of us had any idea about the history and special events depicted on this museum/boat. Very Cool!
