  • Very interesting place. There are good displays about the history of the island and building that is now the museum. Nice little gift shop also and the staff were very friendly and have good knowledge of the area. If you need a break and want to cool off this is nice stop from all the shopping!
  • This museum was a great place to go when it was raining. It teaches you a little bit of history about the place and has a cool Scuba Diving Exhibit. I would recommend it as it is also a small museum which can be done very quickly.
  • This was well worth the visit. It really gave us a sense of who the people of these islands are. Very enjoyable.
  • The information was all beautifully presented and I would gladly go there again to reabsorb all of the Island's wonderful history! 10/10 would recommend to anyone who is visiting!
  • You learn alot about the island in this museum. I strongly recommend you visit the island's museum.
