Self guided tour, chair lift to second floor not working on our visit, caretaker very informative, had a lot of story about items donated. Scavenger hunt was fun, prize a magnet, very interesting worth the money and time.

My hubby and I went to St. Mary's for a weekend getaway. Was planning on going to Cumberland Island but that didn't happen. Instead we went to the Submarine museum. It was great!! Only $5 to get in. The history was amazing!! Love it!!

Must have been some special even because there is never a problem with parking in that area. Don't know what the problem could have been that day.
