Worth a visit although off the beaten path. 4 miles (each way)bike ride away from downtown. Part of the ride is out of the bike path and may be a bit nerve wreaking if riding with children. There is a nice hamburger restaurant just where the bike path begins which could be a good stop before or after visiting museum. Well conducted brief presentation by a docent. Call and check for time as it is worth listening to it. They also have a continuous movie. The museum is about the shipwrecks on the many shoals surrounding the island the heroic rescue crews and their methodology. Middle school children, teenagers and adults will enjoy it. If in Nantucket only for a day skip it a go to the Whaling museum instead.
