  • Nice little museum. We arrived just in time for a tour with a guide. Amelia island has so much more history than I ever new of. Worth checking it out is your interested in history.
  • Excellent displays of 400+ years of history on Amelia Island. Docent-led tours at 10 and 2 daily are included in price of admission and are well worth one's time. Temporary exhibit changes every few months. Walking tours of historic district available as well as pub crawl and ghost tour. Highly recommended.
  • A fascinating and well done display of the rich history of Amelia Island. Great rainy day activity. Highly recommend!
  • Great place for parents with children. Young children will see plenty to engage then. Adults, at the same time, will enjoy learning about the history of Amelia Island.
  • The best scavenger hunt I've had in my life. Got these guys as a prize
