This tour was included in our choice of Old Towne Trolley packages. My husband is a Maritime buff, so that choice was a given. The gardens of this historic house is the most beautiful and well done, not to mention extensive of all of the museums or houses we toured on our visit. The house is renovated in historic period décor. Speaking with the nice lady at the desk, she made us aware that the house was almost a ruin when the Sea Maritime Museum took it over, so they did not have much information about its original interior.
The rooms house cases of ship models, some quite large and very nicely done. There were a couple of rooms on the upper floor that put me on alert on entering them. Don't know why... Nice museum though, very well done.
