small museum. only takes moments. not sure it is worth the $25 for two adults and one child. Not enough information to constitute the cost.

We are sorry that you felt that our museum was small and not enough information. Our fee for a 2 adult family with 1 child is $17 not $25 as you stated.

It was both interesting and informative. The helpful staff showed us various places to go rock collecting in the area.

We were disappointed to miss the last beach tour as the tide was coming in. The website did not list daily tour times and we didn't know that we should have called ahead of time for this information. However, we did enjoy the exhibits and made mineral sample cards for $5 each. The staff explained about each mineral as we made them. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We received a map to the Partridge Island area where we were able to spend the rest of the afternoon walking the beach and looking for shells and minerals.

Nice displays, knowledgable & friendly staff. I appreciated the size b/c it was just enough info for the kids without being too overwhelming for them.

A little disappointing after a three and a half hour drive to get there. Just not quite what we were expecting. A small museum, but interesting. Friendly staff.
