  • The museum is a treasure filled with memories and artifacts. So interesting and to have some time to spend with Captain Jim, who put it all together. 2 hours was not enough time so will need to return. Thank you Captain Jim for sharing your passion with us.
  • A wonderful place to visit. Full of history and artifacts. Captain Jim has done a great job at piecing together the sailing history of the Rockland area, much from his own experiences. A real treasure to visit the museum and meet Captain Jim, take the 1 hour DVD your. We spent 2 hours and need to go back. Best $5 spent in Rockland! With respect to the reviews of people with young children not being too welcome. The museum has many artifacts out on the tables to see, not behind glass. Lots of signs saying "please don't touch." Items picked up and touched by uncontrolled kids would ruin an irreplaceable artifact. Easy test, take kids to a china shop for 3 hours, see how it goes.
