  • It was cool to see the different duck decoys and the tartan, but the remainder of the museum was disappointing. Nothing is arranged chronologically to give you a sense of where it falls into the 1000....  more »
  • Lots of decoys and a good group of wedding dresses. There is a great resource library regarding Clayton here. The military section was disappointing.  more »
  • To the best of my knowledge this museum is not handicap accessible. This small museum has a lot of neat items on exhibit. They change the exhibits seasonally. The research library is very nice. They have a huge amount of materials and it is possible to do research, even if you aren't a member, for a reasonable fee.
  • The free museum was okay. Our visit did not take long, but we enjoyed a stroll around the town center. Stopped at Bella’s, a cafe and restaurant on the waterfront.
