We had a great tour of this tiny museum by DJ and he was very knowledgeable. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this museum. If you have the chance - don't miss it.

The Hull Lifesaving Museum is a jewell for history buffs and novices alike on the south shore. The place is neat and clean and packed with tons of historical artifacts, photos, and articles about a lifestyle long passed.
