We spent a rainy morning here. The museum's main exhibition is devoted to the War of 1812, giving a lot of information from a variety of perspectives. It's very text-heavy and not always where I wanted it. Labels with the texts of faded documents would have been helpful. There's an interactive room for kids; adults and kids can try their hands at knot tying. Outside are exhibits of Coast Guard rescue boats, and a coast guard vessel. The tall ship had departed the day before so we took a cruise on the Lindy Lou, which was a great way to see the river, the developments and learn more about the area's history.
