Specialty Museum Museum
Take a tour of Island House Museum to see an example of typical island architecture and culture. The museum preserves a colonial-era family house and showcases the everyday life of the islanders. Take a peek into the customs, culture, and history of the native San Andres people, and even participate in a traditional dance class after the guided tour. The small but charming house overlooks the Caribbean Sea, so you can relax in the garden or on the balcony and enjoy the calming view.

  • Too bad that this place keeps part of the history of the first inhabitants of the island, has become business, offering dances that ultimately are Caribbean current issues, all to a tip... as far as the House, continues to maintain the living history
