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.

Compact and very well presented history of the Carrabelle and surrounding area. And, what a great and interesting history. This small burg was a mecca from the latter BC's, through the early AD's and on to just after WWII. Tamara's information and willingness to answer...More
