The birthplace museum was very nicely done. We mainly stopped to do Bunkham Cave. It was a great hike and very cool cave. We were able to explore a lot around it (properly). Well worth the time and effort to head out on the hike!!!!

Stopped in before we hiked to the cave. Very knowledgeable guides..we learned quite a bit...including information on the nearby cave.

We really enjoyed hiking the trails to the cave here! The museum, although small, was crammed with various artifacts from Hull's life. The cabin was ok to look at as well.
