Dear TripAdvisor: Unfortunately the museum was forced to close its doors forever back in October 2015 due to very minimal support from the civic, community, and corporate sectors. The vast majority of our exhibits, models, etc. were distributed to other history museums from NYC to...More

After reading reviews we were excited to check out the museum but unfortunately there were signs on the door saying they were forced to close down due to lack of funding! Sadly, all of the exhibits are to be broken down and sold at auction,...More

Family friendly museum, a full spectrum of ships, boats and history. We took a 9 yr old and 12 yr old, they enjoyed the boats, models and coloring. My husband really found the displays well made and very informative.

Please note, it is easy to miss from the outside, but wonderfully rich with artifacts, pictures, history and information inside. The gentleman behind the counter was very helpful and...More

This museum is located inside the Landing and is not located outside as it's suggested by Google Earth. I'm not really into maritime museums but this one really changed my mind. I had visited the one in St. May's and was not impressed. With apprehension...More

This terrific center is in the Jax Landing center and is well worth an hour to check it out. The centerpiece is a model of USS Saratoga that is 154 feet long and is done in great detail! Many other aspects of the maritime history...More

Wow! What a neat place! LOTS of ships to see and knots to try. Learned a lot as an adult. It's free, but they work/operate off donations as you exit.
