  • If you like history, you will enjoy it. 30 minutes tops you're done. 5$ per person.
  • A great little gem. Loved at it there photos and stories.
  • It's a great plase to come for a vacation love it here
  • Great place to learn history of Kelly's island
  • 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.
