This museum is a converted home that houses the extensive history of Useppa. Only open from noon-2pm, it's worth the opportunity to explore. Visitors are given audio guides, which walk you chronologically through the history of the Island, from early Native settlements to recent hurricanes and revitalization. Between ancient artifacts, dioramas, photographs, artist renderings and videos, it's an interesting step through time. It's amazing how much has taken place on such a small island. There was a $5 donation for admittance, and the docent was friendly and helpful. A small gift shop ends the tour with nice souvenirs of the Island.
