We visited on a very rainy day, two floors of interesting historical facts. Lots of pictures and the staff when asked, was very informative.

We stopped by for a few minutes while on the board walk. Not a lot to see, a few displays, some decoys and a fellow carving a new decoy. I would suggest making a special trip to see it, but OK if you're walking by.

But the trinkets can be pricey. There was little 'museum' here, mostly things for sale. Some duck decoys and some antique rifles were displayed. Walk the beach instead.
