Not a bad way to spend 45 minutes on a rainy day in Ptown! A lot of reading, but also some hands son stuff for the kids.

Barry Clifford found Sam Bellamy's ship at Marconi Beach and some of the relics are here. The museum is small and focused, but there is enough to stoke a child's imagination. Perfect rainy day activity.
