  • Great place to learn more about the life and culture of this close knit community that was cut off from the mainland for so long. Great for older children and young at heart people😁. They have a scavenger hunt where you have to find a list of objects all located somewhere within the exhibits. Some of them are really tricky!!! Spent an enjoyable one hour + at the museum. Wonderful cold or rainy day activity.
  • I had a group of people to enjoy a short get away in September. The hotel we were staying gave us tokens to visit the museum 4 free. Well in September, they r only open on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but the hotel contacted someone and got them to open the museum for us to see...great little museum.
  • Great fun. Cute museum, and informative history of the island and fishing/crabbing thru the years.
  • Very cute museum with tons of history about the island. Charges $4 per person which isn't too bad.
  • Very comprehensive. Whoever wrote the signage in here had a great arms of humor. Wonderful collection of artifacts from the colorful history of the island and its people.
