I skipped but my friend went. Not worth the price of admission of $5. Noise prevented him from hearing the sound of TV screens. Not as good as other maritime museums we've visited in the past.

This place is pretty amazing with all the adventure trips you can book with them plus and entire area where instructors help young people make and float a boat. The museum is pretty neat also. Recommend the sunset cruise.

This Maritime Museum is small but packed with wonderful history. The tour boat was great with an original Apalachicola resident who what full of history and knowledge. Sorry, I don't remember his name but the 72 year old gentleman was really great.

The museum is small, but it's very interesting and worth the time to explore it. We visited it after enjoying a wonderful boat tour of the Apalachicola River and distributaries. Lots of great local stories as well as information about the river, plant life and...More

Great little place to visit, nice people. Interesting exhibits, especially the boat-building classes. Well worth a stop. Free but donations are appreciated.

First, the very small Maritine Museum is difficult to get into. The clerk at the desk will ask you name, home address, phone number in addition to collecting the $10 for 2 entrance fee. The reason for this I would guess is that at the...More
