The museum was full of people who were extremely well versed about the 1812 war. There was a movie and lots of artifacts.

Nice facility... they've done a great job with it. Taking a tour of the boat with an informed guide was a plus- he was able to point out all the little ins and outs fo 19th century naval navigation. Museum had great exhibits on the Battle of Lake Erie... I definitely left with a good understanding of how it unfolded. Good gift shop. My visit made me want to come back for one of their day sails.

Maritime history in various formats for any age and interest level. The best time to visit is when the Brig Niagara is in port. We went on board and met several of the student volunteers and heard about sailing "old school." The smell of the sails and the ropes, walking on the deck, talking with the crew, brought it to life. Our small tour group had kids as young as 6 and a couple in their 90's - everyone had a ball!

Enjoyed the tour of the Niagara. It was interesting to see the lower deck of the ship and how the sailors lived. The museum part is fairly small, but interesting.
