Great place to visit- lots to see and do - excellent value for money We spent an afternoon & the following morning exploring. Took a steam boat trip on the river. Ideal family day out.

Enjoyable to walk through and see the different displays. As an adult appreciated the history and the sites and gave a very good feel of the times when whaling was big.

We went during the off season and it was great to spend time and chat with each person. The blacksmith was very entertaining as well as the cooper who was making barrels. Getting a peak into the whaling ship Morgan was amazing and watching it get restored first hand. If your into history, fishing, early American life, or just want to see how things were way back when it is certainly worth a visit!

After numerous trips, we passed by the seaport. My wife and I finally stopped. It was a great learning experience. There are several restored whaling ships the you can board. You learn about the life of a whaler. Walking around, seeing the rest of the attractions, we were both impressed. This is a trip for the family. The only down side is the cost, a bit pricy, but I found it worth it.

It is a very nice visit since you can walk through the historic village as you wish. Several boats can be visited. Large area so not too crowded. And we had a small lunch on one of the terraces and it was good quality, with view on the sea and the historic boats.
