This is by far the best maritime museum we've visited. The ship models are amazing, the videos and other materials informative and entertaining, and the boat tours are unique. Besides, where else have you seen a three-story room filled with outboard motors?

Boring. I thought it would be much better than it was. If you are a man or woman interested in boats, motors, lures for fishing, and anything to do with the sea, then go. Unfortunately I did not enjoy it.
