Interesting museum about the history of Greenport and area light houses. It's small so does not take much time.

Another MUST SEE when visiting Greenport, lots of intriguing artifacts in this museum. Great photos, old details of Greenport's whaling past, a small aquarium tank, clean restroom. But check times when it is open. It is open more in the Summer than at other times.
