  • Last year a visit to the museum was a rainy day choice. We were surprised by the quality of displays and the details we learned about the island. Well worth a visit - even on a sunny day.  more »

  • Surprisingly amazing for such a small museum. Even my young Elementary School kids loved it and wanted to spend more time. We were there for 2 hours and could easily spend one more. The staff was voluntary but v incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Very well kept museum.
  • Great museum tucked a block off the main drag. Don't hesitate to take a guided tour with a docent. Mr. Birdsong is a gem of a volunteer. His love of the area shines through. The displays are incredibly professional for a museum in a small town. I really enjoyed stamping my paper as I roamed from room to room reading the displays. Certainly worth the admission price.
