What an amazing place. Lots of history in one place. A great find, from flint points, pottery shards, to French cannons and ship wrecks. Glad we stopped in. Great gift store too..

Very well rounded condensed version of the history of the area. Dates back several centuries. Original items on display as well as mock ups. Young man working there was very well informed and helpful.

Hello, there was no stated admission price. However, they do recommend a donation. The place is very nice and the information was invaluable. We thought a good donation was about $5 per person.
