The museum was very informative and we decided to book a Sunset Cruise through the museum. The captain was interesting and knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed watching dolphins swim along side of the boat-and saw an alligator !! Was a beautiful sunset !

Stopped in to the museum because they advertised they also had a coffee shop at the location. All I saw was a sparse gift shop and a random coffee pot. Would love to explore the museum at some point, but a little put off about...More

There is a espresso machine and a regular coffee machine for coffee. We serve coffee from either for $1 per cup. A great value given the going price at Starbucks and the like. And while we don't provide iced latte or the fancier permutations of...More

The riverboat cruise on the original date selected was canceled due to illness of the primary captain and the backup captain being out of town. We NEVER cancel trips due to a low number of guests. We always offer alternative dates and times, but the...More

Lots of well documented exhibits, videos, even a small library. I learned a lot about the history of the town and its industries. It feels like a labor of love by folks who simply love boats and Apalachicola.
