You may have been lucky enough to visit an attraction which recreates life in a village of the past. Seaport does the same but all based around the houses and trades which lined the docks and ports of the past, together with various boats and...More

We paid $28 entrance fee thinking that would include all activities, but we were wrong. We had to pay $5 or more for entrances to boats, ride, planetarium. We thought the demonstrations were ok and the restaurant was reasonably priced.
