Small Maritime museum, but really good ship models and nice grounds. Well worth the visit. For the price it can't be beat.

What an eye opener !!!!! We thought it would be a quick visit but ended up spending 3 hours. The models are incredible and the history of how the seafarers lived is very entertaining and informative.

If you like model ships, you will love this museum! The detail that goes into each ship was amazing! Because we were a group, we were given "living history" guides that told us about the Civil War ships and some of the other battle ships...More

I am guessing the gardens are beautiful in the summer. I would rate the museum itself just ok - a bit of a disappointment for me.

You really need to be very interested in ships and the history of them to get the most from this museum, but it was included with other tours on a ticket we purchased and the house it’s in is also quite interesting to see.

This museum has an amazing collection of models of boats. They are amazingly detailed. The price of entry is very reasonable. They do allow photography.

This is a small museum. There are model replicas of ships with accompanying plaquards. This is a fine museum for those interested in ships. This museum should be skipped by those who don't care about ships. The front desk person was very knowledgeable about ship...More
