WE walked all over town one morning looking for the museum.. Its moved and nobody knows where . We tried several locations where it "might be" but alas. No one seems to know where it is anymore! Weird.

We enjoyed seeing the exhibits and learning about the history of the island. Needs another fan or two though! We really enjoyed the outdoor exhibits.

If you want to see a lot of unusual butterflies this is the place to do it. My daughter is majoring in entemology in college and she thought the variety, value, and health of the insects was excellent.

We visited the museum November 20, 2009. The people were very nice and the guide led us to the restored King's storehouse which is several hundred years old.
