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.

Nice place. We visited during an event and will be returning when things are less hectic. Looks like there is a lot to see and spend some time learning of the history of the area.

We recently stopped in to the RFM as we were visiting the Northern Neck. This small museum is well appointed with wonderful historical artifacts, photographs and dioramas of the commercial fishing industry especially that surrounding Menhaden. There is a nice gift shop complete with cookbooks, clothing and children's memorabilia. We also took a tour of the restored 1875 Walker House which gives an excellent glimpse into how family's lived in those bygone days. Just the tour of the house was worth the trip. But mostly we have to give our appreciation to the volunteer staff who were enthused, friendly and well educated in the museum. They were great folks. This is a museum dedicated to the commercial fisheries industry but also gives a good reflection of the history of the Northern Neck.

We stopped here on our way to a family vacation. My dad is a big fan of fishing and fishing related things so I thought this would be a great museum for him. We were not disappointed. The docents were fantastic and took us on a tour of the boat building area as well as the model train display - don't miss either of them!

We stopped by well before the museum opened because we were on our way out of town, but still got to see a large variety of sailing vessels, accompanied by interpretive signs. Lovely location. Next trip we will get there during business hours.
