We were the only ones in place when we visited. The hostess there was very informative and it was interesting learning more about the history of Newport. I think it will get even better as they expand the displays. The video we saw was well done and the views from their deck were incredible.

A wealth of information here, staff very knowledgeable and will tell you story after story if you ask. Beautiful views of the crab boats and boardwalk area for shoppibg, eating and fun!
