  • It was a quiet day at the museum, but the lady allowed me to look around. I enjoyed my visit.The parking was good, and the location was easy to find. This is a museum for those who like small boats.  more »

  • I came here for research on a project and the amount of information available is outstanding! I learned a lot from coming here and plan on returning for personal teaching. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful, even if they aren't the expert they will try to help you and usually direct you to one of them who are an expert. They have numerous contacts if you need interviews. I actually plan on volunteering here this summer!
  • Something for everyone. Watch for coming Native American exhibit.
