Palm Beach property owners who’d like to learn more about the history of their town should plan a visit to the Palm Beach Maritime Museum. There are two locations for the museum. Go to Currie Park to see artifacts that tell the history of the area, interactive exhibits and simulations to help visitors experience life as it was. In addition to the exhibits, the Currie Park location has a dock for the ferry that takes visitors to Peanut Island. This is the historic Palm Beach real estate location of the John F. Kennedy bomb shelter, which was made available to the president and his family and entourage during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Ride the ferry to the island to tour the bunker and get a sense of the preparations that took place before the crisis was resolved peacefully. The Boathouse and Coast Guard Station are also located at Peanut Island and have been painstakingly restored.
