The curator of the museum was very knowledgeable and very engaging. She told us as many neat stories as we cared to listen to. Very interesting to learn how they harvest oysters. Well worth the visit.

Lots of interesting local items. Best to go when you have plenty of time and want to ask questions of the people on hand.
