Well done museum! For someone not interested in history, it was very fun to visit! Climbed the spiral stairs to the top of the lighthouse! Nice Christmas open house with cookies and hot cider!

I was impressed with the variety and detailed nature of the collection. Low admission fee also includes the lighthouse. Materials and displays are well organized into themes.
