Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and interesting museum. We took the 45 min. cruise and were glad we did. Captain Richard was fun and knowledgeable having grown up in Apalachicola. It's sad how much this community has changed, but he made history come alive.

The museum is a good presentation of the history of boating and fishing. A wooden boat building class was underway and we enjoyed a conversation with the participants and instructor.

We spent quite some time exploring and reading in this museum. Lots of great old pictures, maps and stories of the area. Well worth the visit and free. Donations accepted to help keep it going.
