Loved it! I took my Mom when she came to visit and we got a fantastic tour from Bob! He was very knowledgeable and did an incredible job of just telling us facts about the things that piqued out interest. I usually don't like tours, but he was great!

There were a lot of cool stuff there and it generally shows the culture of the area. Everyone working is really nice! They all don't mind answering your questions and showing you around!

From Our Editors

The Channel Islands Maritime Museum brings the area's rich seafaring history to life with original paintings, ship models, and intricately decorated scrimshaw. After 21 years in one spot, the museum relocated in 2012, hauling along its 2,000-strong catalogue of artifacts—including historic documents, records, and art—to its current location on Channel Islands Harbor. Museum collections inside the new digs highlight periods and industries important to the development of the local maritime culture, reaching as far back as the Chinese Treasure Fleets that sailed the high seas in the 15th century. More modern attractions include the collection that explores whaling industry of the 18th an 19th centuries, the curious case of the La Jenelle, a ship that sunk right in the harbor in 1970 thanks to a nasty northwester.
