  • This living history museum is outstanding. Some of the highlights include the Charles Morgan Whaleboat built in 1841 and a short boat trip of the neighboring area.

  • I really liked the Museum. There are many boats and workshops from the day where they show how the implements of the maritime trade and whaling were made. Several of the workshops are attended and people working there. I will return to finish looking at everything. The tickets are good for a week. So if you are staying in the area and want to return for a few days that works out great.
  • Excellent museum that represents old time living. Staff very helpful. Charles Morgan is a wonderful whaling ship. Narrator on board was knowledgeable. Looking forward to viewing the viking ship being restored. Thank you. 😊
