  • That's NOT what I meant or said. It's a good museum just on the small side. I'm sure The Island has much more history to tell! On our ride and walk around the island we saw so much history. Like how did the island come be, or what people settled there. The architecture alone said a lot. There's just a lot more history to tell.
  • Admission very inexpensive. Museum is small but nicely done. Docents very nice. It has nice restrooms and a cute historical gift shop.
  • Great local museum outlining Island history. Staff is active and continually updating records, and exhibits.
