“Reedville VA -Second only to Dutch Harbour, AK for revenues”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

Reedville is a quaint (but thankfully) forgotten place.
No High-Rise hotels like other places we know of - Shucks, Here in Reedville, It is even safe to stroll down the side.walks- or you can still park your car on the street without risk of it being towed away. Plus, when you return say from a Day -Trip to say Tangier Island, your car will be just as you left it - intact !

“Great little local museum!”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

This little museum packs a surprise with a lot of interesting displays inside and several working type boats in a shed at the back. Located on the water, it evokes the feel of a working waterfront that's all but gone.

“Very Informative and Fun”
Reviewed June 25, 2009

We visited this museum expecting it to take about 20 minutes. We were entertained for over an hour and learned so much about the area and it's fishing history. Do not miss the electric train set up and model of the buildings in Reedville and other area towns. The history and various exhibits both inside and in the bay were fascinating.
