There is a lot of planning and construction going on at each AMM location which will span the next several years as we seek to make the Museum a world class attraction by which to spread the educational message of economic opportunity through environmental stewardship, working waterfront maintenance, heritage based skills and educational adventures that broaden the mind, renew the spirit and tone the muscle. We encourage your feedback on our plans. Please send your thoughts and suggestions on our facility improvement plans to Museum Administration. Here are a four venues where the AMM operates educational programs, including the following:
• Downtown Apalachicola •
The original location at 103 Water Street in downtown Apalachicola was a dilapidated seafood processing facility we opened in 2007 with the arrival of the S/V HERITAGE and renovated in 2010. This location is on the water opposite the County Courthouse at the end of the Apalachicola River. Most of the AMM educational excursions into the estuaries, river and bay depart and return from this location.
• Chattahoochee, Florida •
• Chattahoochee •
The second location is at the start of the Apalachicola River in the city of Chattahoochee, Florida where the Chattahoochee and Flint rivers join to form the Apalachicola River. The AMM operates a 120 acre facility which occupies nearly a mile of the eastern shore of the river just below the Lake Seminole Dam and city operated Chattahoochee boat landing and RV park. This location hosts special events and was a former paddlewheel boat landing and gravel operation.
• St. George Island •
The third location is at the historic St. George Island Ferry Boat Basin which occupies 26 acres to the West of the causeway as it comes onto the island. The former harbor is currently being renovated as a paddle center and soon to be a full fledged harbor.
• Breakaway Lodge •
The fourth location is the historic Breakaway Lodge that was formally a marina located on the Western shore of the Apalachicola river located four miles north of the downtown Apalachicola.
