Ran into a man at a little food shop down the road and was talking to him about attractions in the area. He recommended this place and we told him that we would probably go check it out after lunch and we did. We pull up and there he is, walking us in telling us that he is the current president on the board of this museum. We go in and he pays for my family of 5 admittance. We took the tour, my kids did the scavenger hunt and the whole experience was Great! A lot of information and very cool exhibits in this place. The boat was very neat. My whole family enjoyed it. Thank you for a wonderful experience👍 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
