Much of this museum is about the critical importance of the menhaden, a fish that is caught in big nets by the ton. Never heard of it? It's in a surprising amount of food. In addition to an incredible maritime and industrial museum, it has...More

We took a day trip to Reedville, VA which is at the end of the road on Highway 390. Once a vibrant fishing village now a sleepy waterfront town with a rich history. No place better to learn about that history than in the Fisherman’s...More

REturned this year for the 6th time. Love the museum and its exhibits. It's so accessible and informative. The gift shop is small but the choices are nice. Would recommend as a "must see" if you are in the area.

I was just checking to see what was in the town. I came upon this museum. It looked very small, but I took a look anyway. It was much more. There is much here.
