“Very Interesting Small Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

A small but very informative and interesting museum. My daughter and wife who hate museums really enjoyed this one. A stop here is a must to understand the history and significance of the island. The exhibits were very well thought out and displayed. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well.

“A lot to see in this little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

A cool little museum perfect for learning the history of Chincoteague and the area generally. I cannot say enough good things about the very nice women that greeted us, answered our questions and helped with the scavenger hunt. Both young and old will find something of interest. It is very small but don't let that fool you - a lot to be seen. And, it's only $3/per person, children free!

They have the very best collection of memorabilia and historical items of Chincoteague. I very highly reccomend seeing this museum. It is just before the Assateague Island bridge.
