  • This Museum packed an enormous amount of History into what seems like a small space. The docent, Dee, who took us through each room and each era, was entertaining, informative, and really brought history to life. When a small child joined us later in the tour, she engaged her and made her part of the tour and the child was obviously delighted to help out. Really, it's the docents who make this a wonderful experience and the $8 you pay for the tour is a small amount to ask for such a well-kept museum. It's also wonderful to explore on your own. Period pieces, wonderful photographs and illustrations and a great collection of items that make Amelia Island a historical treasure. I would absolutely recommend going here and can't wait to bring my daughter with me next time.
  • Perfect place to kill some time if its rainy. We were a little too early for the guided tour but there's tons of interesting info to see and read. They have a scavenger hunt for the kids who get a prize at the end. The staff was very nice. The building is an old jail and has a great vibe.
