“A Nice Small Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2006

While not included in all around the island tours, it is worth seeing if you have the chance. Yes, the house itself is a reconstruction, but to exact specifications of the original which was located where the main road is now. The museum is small but well organized and with interesting artifacts from Mr. Hall's quite interesting life. The custodians who welcomed us were extremely pleasant and left us to view exhibits at our leisure.There is even a small refreshment area.
