  • This was a family friendly small museum with beautiful grounds. Very beautiful Pulmeria Flowers were in full bloom. An inexpensive museum asking for small donation or low cost entrance fee. This Museum is very close to the beaches and some restaurants.
  • Very nice place, not big at all, we took our time and looked through all of the exhibits, read the information provided about each visit and took about 2 hours to see everything at our own (slow) pace. Curators are very nice and knowledgeable of the area and its history.
  • What a gem! It's small but I really enjoyed this museum and so did my 6 year old son.
  • Great place to learn about local history with nice people willing to share stories. Kid friendly.
  • It was cute little three-room museum. The exhibits were very informing but it was obvious that they could be so much more. Definitely pay a visit and make a donation, as the museum is FREE.
