This is a little museum with a real assortment of collections: the winning entries in the annual duck/goose decoy contest, an old-fashioned kitchen display, photographs of local history, a feature on a now defunct local company that manufactured snow plows, a gift shop with locally made crafts. A little of this, a little of that. It's free, and a pleasant way to spend some time.

It was cute, but not much is there. They seem to really cater to genealogists...half of the place is taken up by the research library. A lot of decoys and fishing lures.

What a great little museum. Wonderful research area in the back. Nice gift shop and great display of decoys. Great educational facility that even my teenagers found interesting. Free admission was very nice for a family on a budget but we did make sure we put something in the volunteer donation jar.

i love nascar and high speed races but the visual sighting of the history of wooden boats slow and fast ,faster,and fastest was a part of our history that should be told more to our children in early classes and highlighted in high schools for the bright engineers to go on with boat making futures.what a great beginning us common folk stepped on and just exploded with one concept and design on and on.what brillant people in the boating world . thank you for all of this rich history and dedication for the water people of the world.
