We visited with several friends and children from 1 to 12 years old. The small Museum is very nice and almost empty. Play space, Picknick tables, nice forest stroll to the tiny beach. Definitely worth visiting with a small group. Great Birthday Party Place.

This is a great place to take your children to learn about the American Indians and how they continued to Long Island. Then you can sit outside and have a great lunch and enjoy the scenery.
