Looks like a great museum. I'll have to add it to my list of must see places. I've been wanting to visit Salem, MA for quite some time.

Wonderful museum. Like Luis I love that first shot.

Those figureheads in the second shot are spectacular. Actually, everything I can see is spectacular. It looks like a wonderful museum. It now has a spot on The List, along with Mystic Seaport.
