“There's nothing much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Unfortunately, for a city that can trace back its history to thousands of years ago, there is nothing much in display. To make your trip in this part of the city worthwhile visit the following nearby place of interest:

1. St. Augustine Cathedral - Historical Site
2. Gaston Park - Historical Site
3. LaTigola - Authentic Italian Restaurant

“Nice, little museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The museum is in a tower across from Gaston Park. As is sometimes the case, many of the locals did not know it existed. There is no admission fee but they do accept donations. There are 3 floors of exhibits ranging from Chinese trade pottery, pictures from WWII and also paintings from local artists. The curator was on-hand and she was very kind to show us around and make comments on certain pieces. I recommend if you are in the area to stop by and support this effort. It is quaint and interesting.

“Partial History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Pieces of history and information were limited. I suggest that they should improve more on the historical research.
