One of my trip pearl which I discovered by accident was this noble maritime collection. Amazing free exhibition of ships, sailor's life and all so beautiful and peaceful.

Every November this museum sponsors a combined fine art auction and cocktail party that is as splendid as their permanent and changing exhibits, gift shop and children's & adult educational experiences. Go visit: It's a gem of a sail.

CHoose to hold a small party to celebrate a second wedding reception. The staff at the Noble Maritime were extremely knowledgeable about party planning and the museum was impeccable, the guests were pleasantly surprised you could check out the collection during the party..Highly recommended for a small gathering in a unique setting.

They also offer classes for school groups, workshops, boat trips, etc. We spent several hours here and could have stayed longer. It wasn't crowded and there was lots to see and read.... More

This is a charming and engaging museum featuring the art and collectibles of a very interesting man. The exhibit of his house boat apartment and studio is a real show piece. This museum makes for a pleasant and quiet diversion and it's worth a visit.
