“Gem of a maritime museum”
Reviewed 11 January 2011

This unique privately run family maritime museum is simply a must see in the NE Florida area. The town is Welaka that is nestled on the banks of the St John's River so you can tie up at the public docks and walk the four blocks to the museum. There are all kinds of maritime things on display but the star are the hand crafted wooden boats that are simply beautiful works of arts. They also have a display of antique classic boats, outboard engines, working steam engines, figureheads, actually everywhere you look there is something to see. It's worth the drive from St. Augustine, Orlando, Jacksonville or Daytona Beach. A wonderful restaurant sits on the banks of the river next to the public boat docks too. Friendly town and a gem of a museum.
