About Paul J. Mila-
Paul J. Mila retired after a successful career in corporate life and now devotes his time to writing, scuba diving, film making and underwater photography. Paul has photographed and dived with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas, humpback whales in the Dominican Republic, and an amazing variety of sea life in Cozumel, Bonaire, Antigua and Hawaii. His underwater pictures are featured on diving web sites and are used in his novels to give non-diving readers a glimpse into the beauty of our undersea world.
Again, I would be happy to bring people in my car. If you want to drive and take people in your car, indicate that when you rsvp.
As for public transportation- you can take the Port Jefferson line to Cold Spring Harbor and the museum is about 3-4 miles from there so you can take a cab from there.
The museum charges $5 for admission.
