Hubby and I stopped in on a whim one afternoon while looking for things to do. We were greeted right away and then told we needed to give them a $5 donation per person. Ok, we were going to look around the lobby first and decide if we wanted to go in, so please don't rush the ONLY people in the room. We played along and decided to give it a try. We were told the building was behind us and given a menu that would guide us through the museum. Once inside (air conditioned thank God) the displays were pretty neat. I enjoyed the first part of the "tour" with some history of the area. This is not a big place, but there is a lot packed in. Be prepared to do a lot of reading, but it was worth it as there was a lot of interesting information. There is a nice dock that affords some neat views of the working business around and the river. Did not give this more than 3 "stars" because they shut the lights off on us halfway through and when we left, the agent in the lobby was too busy talking on her cell phone about very personal issues to bother with us. It was a shame because we had some questions and I wanted to purchase some of the prints they had. Would recommend this for someone really into boats and maritime activities.
