The Maritime Museum itself if disappointing. It really is a mish mash of things, with no order or history. There are two buildings and the JFK bunker. The welcome center could be a lot more welcoming, though the personnel working there were friendly and helpful. The exhibits were few and disjointed.

They have a few pictures on the wall of a terrible gift shop. There is absolutely nothing of value that can be gleaned from them. Of course, you could choose to take... 更多

If you go Thursday thru Sunday, in addition to enjoying this Island Park, you can gain insight into... 更多
