Quite a small museum, but very interesting. Not a great deal of artefacts but it has to be remembered that a lot of destructive weather has taken it's toll in the past. It is situated in the Old Court House

Not that big a place and need only an hour to speed through a timeline of the islands history. Good little museum if you're interested in such things.
