Tom Adams was a nationally known craftsman of high quality ship models.
Some of his models were featured in the "Scale Ship Modeler" magazine.
The "Sindia" which sank off of Ocean City was Tom’s earliest and most popular model.
The Cape May Ferry model is always popular among the children who visit the museum.
Tools and equipment of the shipwright are displayed around a workbench.
Miscellaneous items related to maritime life are included in this exhibit.
The half hulls of ship builders gave a three-dimensional shape to their ship designs.
Dead eyes, pulleys, and mast hoops are tools of local ship builders and sea captains.
This display focuses on items used for fishing, oystering and clamming in Scull Bay.
