  • Friendly staff. Even had a very polite young man (on staff) hold the door open for me and my wife as we walked up to the building. I was about to pay admission, then realizing I only had 10 dollars in cash any my Amex card. Fortunately they only charge 4 for military/veterans. The museum had awesome displays and very detailed information on the history of Amelia Island. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because all of the scavenger hunt stamps were broke. Also there were some out of place objects lying around. Overall, the museum was great. I love to see a town take such pride and preserving it's past.
  • Worth a visit! In just an hour or so you can get a real feel for old Florida and the history of Amelia Island.
  • Really neat museum with lots to see I was surprised
  • I love historic history
  • Try attending some of their events, they have some great presentations!
