Great small museum to take kids to see marine life. All types a aquatic fish and reptiles in aquariums built into the walls with history to read about all of the animals.

No longer open.

Was great when it was open. Restored boats and other handmade items. Info available on history of each boat. Sad it closed but due to deaths.

This Place Was Wonderful * So Sorry It's Gone
Aug 2013 • Friends
Owner sold everything at auction in 2013. Very sorry to see it go, the boats were extraordinary. Two different maritime museums bought the major stuff, so those beautiful boats are now being appreciated by many more people. A sad loss for Welaka, though.

Gem of a maritime museum
Aug 2010
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.
