Many buildings were closed or open without a docent available to tell you what it was. They told us it was due to lack of staff wanting to return after COVID.

So fun. Have 3-4 hours to see and participate.

The exhibits on woodworking and shipbuilding were excellent. The exhibits on the social and environmental aspects of whaling and sailing were poorly done and felt nearly 40 years old. It was not worth the cost.
