This museum stayed open late for me and my parents and I actually learned quite a bit about the island, because it had interesting max cool things to teach me like how to tie knots. I am going on thirteen and it sure grabbed my attention. I am sure that it will grab your jaded tweenager's interest as well. PS... More

Spoke on the phone with Beau in the Library. VERY knowledgable gentleman, loved hearing about what he knows. Can't wait to meet him and learn more about this beautiful island!

Lots of information about MV. Great activities for small children, very knowledgeable docents. This was my second visit to MV--wish I had done this tour on the first visit--it sets a context for many of the things that you see on the Vineyard.

Everything was great here. We arrived just before Memorial Day weekend so it was not very crowded and had a blast before all of the tourists arrived. Overall a great place to visit.

Our last day at MV was during the heat wave. Our family had to check out of our hotel and we had the entire day to stay before meeting the ferry. The temperature was over 95F. We asked the hotel concierge service for recommendations for what we should do on the island while remaining cool. The concierge service called the... More

I went by myself on a mini-self guided tour of Edgartown first then went over to the historical society/museum. The lawn was well kept and had a few beautiful trees and such. There was also a lighthouse, carriages,... More

The Camp-Meeting Association at Oak Bluffs is a wonderful example of the culture and values of the Victorian era. Those who discovered the charm and natural isolation of Martha's Vineyard found a spot where they could immerse themselves in their religion. A quick ferry trip, with lots of views, takes you to the island. The cottages off 1 Trinity Park... More
