Our guide was excellent and taught us about industries that until recently were the dominant force. We learned about oyster shucking, blacksmithing, fabric and printing. Kids and adults really enjoyed the museum - well worth a visit over the typical attractions.

This museum really reminds me of the small town history museums with stacks of stuff and the occasional label but also enthusiastic and knowledgeable docents. In other words, there's a lot of stuff but the only way to really find out about it is to...More
