  • Fun little museum whose admission was included with battleship cove. Had a lot of interesting history about the Fall River line.
  • A very nice museum for an educational experience. I bet this museum would be perfect for a group of kids on a rainy day or class trip. The staff was very friendly and informative about everything on display. Very reasonable with pricing. I wish it was a little brighter inside but i get thats the whole museum vibe. Nice place!
