A nice attraction but way overpriced for what you get out of it. I do recommend the lantern light tours at Christmas which are fun and get you into the spirit of the holiday but once again you are going to have to fork out a lot of money and you leave wondering "That's all I get for that price".

A real gem to visit. Bigger than we thought. We visited just out of season, so we could not go on a boat/ship ride. However, still plenty to do and see. Go walk around a tall ship, that was used for training sailors and still used each year as a summer camp for boys aged 9-16. Really good history told to you by the person on board. Visit the little buildings throughout and see how they construct things and listen to all the info given, as real informative and interesting to hear. Loved this day out and would highly recommend.

Interesting attraction, a small 1800's town. Didn't know what to expect. Limited attactions of a few building actually in use, lot a tall sail ships. Also most like being in Disneyland's Jungleland in 1960s.

We only had about 2 hours to explore this treasure, so we were especially glad that the desk help gave us a map on which he circled the things we should try to get in first. This is a place one would want a whole day to enjoy. Parking was easy, which was a relief.
