Found this gem on-line and glad we did! A charming little stroll into the past. Small but meticulously presented look into life 200 years ago. Very friendly staff, farm animals, blacksmith lessons and unique artifacts. A perfect activity for non-beach days!

Multiple buildings, a range of time periods. Lots of artifacts from the land and the sea, including "petrified" whale bones. What an amazing museum with historical clothing (and Hats, Hats, Hats), arrowheads, fishing nets, washtubs, and SO MUCH more. We were amazed by this place....More
