We've been to this museum before, and were just a little disappointed that there wasn't too much new, but we always enjoy it.

Give the curator and staff credit for working hard to find exhibitions which fit their limited space and are worth viewing. Check website or local paper to see what's on offer before visit.

The location is a primary reason that this museum gets used for weddings constantly. It overlooks the water and has a nice feel to it. But as for the artwork, there isn't much!

This place was awesome. The area was PERFECT for a wedding reception. The beach behind the building made an amazing backdrop. The staff was wonderful, and parking wasn't too bad either!

I think so, but it would make much sense to ask them.
How much is the entrance fee? And what is the opening and closing times please? Thanks

I think it is open Thursday through Sunday and the admission was $7 when I went. I don't know the specific times. Hope that helps a little.
