  • My daughter and I stopped by the Museum on Friday, April 1, 2016. There is no charge - just a donation bottle. There are no turtles in the museum - that would be in violation of State and Federal laws...  more »
  • Just a tiny shack near the Turtle Crawls. Worth going in to find a little history about the area. Kids trinkets mostly and donations help wildlife in area. 
  • Turtle museum is located in a restored cannery. Quick visit but very informative. Adopt a turtle for $10. Non-profit group helped 700 hatchlings make it to the ocean last spring.

  • Great history of the sea turtles and the island.
  • Great history of the sea turtles and the island. It's a free museum and a great place for a little bit of knowledge. Fun turtle facts and a glimpse into the grave past.
  • Please don't eat canned turtle.
