  • Nice museum in the middle of the old fashioned New England village. The structure is quite small. You have to pay a small fee to get in and see the inside. The ground is free. It a well maintained light house on a nice well kept ground. A good find, and a pleasant stop for all ages.
  • I didn't tour inside only because it was so beautiful outdoors. But, the area is definitely worth driving pass museum into parking lot and taking in the sights. Or if walking navigating the small streets. There is a small beach area you can access for a fee if you want to soke up the sun, feel sand at your feet and cool off in the water.
