A Very Nice Museum! self guided, but nicely laid out! Lots of displays of past Nautical adventures. A good section on Pirates, for the young at heart. Don't miss the boats out back, they are pretty awesome.

There is lots of history of the area in this museum. Be sure to see the movie. This would be a great place not only for adults but also for children. There are lots of hands on activities and interactive games on computers.

Overall it was a neat place but very small. It was a cool reminder of the nautical history of Lake Erie.

This museum contained a lot of history of the area and especially its relationship to Lake Erie. There was also some information on the Underground Railroad which was in the area.
