“Surprisingly interesting museum.”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This collection of model ships, paintings and maritime antiques is in Scarbrough House, which was built in 1819. The house is not historically intact, due to its various uses over the years, but it is still a very impressive building in a lovely garden.
The models are fantastic and very intricate and the history accompanying each one is very interesting and an integral part of the history of this area.
We thought the museum was very interesting and well worth visiting. It was also very reasonably priced.

“Most Interesting”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

This museum is, as the name indicates, all about ships. They have quite a number of replicas of ships through the years. They also offer programs for groups at an additional charge. Their staff is friendly and informative.

“Very well done museum”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

If you like ships, history, beautiful setting and model ships, this is the place for you. This was very well laid out and the model ships very effectively displayed. This house is also historic with beautiful grounds.
