“A Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Truly a hidden jewel. A comprehensive collection near the boardwalk. Definitely worth a visit and then continue along the boardwalk for a pleasant afternoon.

Came in after the Nov. 11 commemoration. Looking for info on my great uncle but nobody there to inquire about him. Displays very interesting, though. Glad I dropped in.

“A lot of artifacts for a small museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011 via mobile

The museum is located inside the armory at the end of Water St. The museum has a lot in it for it's small size. In the hall area there are displays about the many islanders who have served, and inside chronicles the military on the island from the first malitia until present day, including uniforms and artifacts. Admission is by donation. I was impressed by the displays, especially the photographs from WWII that were taken by a soldier who smuggled film in using toothpaste tubes and hidden pockets.
