A very small private museum with a glass related gift shop. It is well laid out and very informative.

This place is sooo not worth the money; there is little to see there--- some colored glass. Considering the price, you would be better off going to beach yourself. In a trailer, it is small and seems like a "museum" that may come with a tax deduction. The highlight of our 7 minutes there was the deer outside in close proximity. In seeing the other reviews, we did not see the owner and when another couple came, the place was crowded.

You obviously missed seeing the museum, which occupies four rooms and approx. 800 square feet.. What you are describing is the small gallery/gift shop section. Trouble is, people don't read and can miss the entrance through the swinging doors.
Always amazes me that people like you can post such negative things when others have raved about it. Doesn't it ever occur to you that you missed something?
I hope you return to see the actual museum so you can understand why it is number 5 of 37 things to do on the coast.

There were some interesting displays, but the emphasis seemed to be on selling expensive jewelry made of sea glass. The history of how the glass came to be was interesting, as was the history of the seafaring man who continues to comb the nearby beaches for more glass was interesting. One could also buy bags of "newly broken" glass to be used to "seed" for future "discovery?

My family and I enjoyed viewing the many different collections of bottles shaped and formed into art pieces by the ocean waves. A nice surprise in the museum is setting a replica of the vessel that shipwrecked asking the coast bringing you the world's attention Fort Bragss and it's beautiful Redwoods. The museum has free admission, but after viewing the numerous artifacts you can't help but make a donation. Plus there's a new African American Wildfire Museum right next door. These museums share a backyard that is often visited by neighboring deers.

This is a must see. Owner is friendly and will answer all your questions. He has collected some interesting and unusual sea glass. He also sells seed glass to help regeneration of the glass.
