Located near Old Fisherman's Wharf is the Monterey Maritime Museum. The two story building is full of mementoes about the nautical history of the area. Among the exhibits, visitors will find the paraphanlia needed by those people who first braved the Monterey sea to farm abalone from the depths of the ocean. Children will like the whale harpoons and adults will enjoy the history. There is a nominal admissions fee for entrance. Call 831-373-2469 for hours.
