“A walk in history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

It takes you thru a trip dating back to when the indians lived there, and then the different flags that were raised and the pirates as well as the great shrimping industry.

“Lots of histry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

It was very hot outside and my sister and I decided to take the tour of the museum. While aspects of the museum were informative the tour was boring - the person was a very poor narrator and if there had been more people in the tour we would have walked out.

“interesting and unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The old jail makes an excellent museum. The permanent exhibits tell a wonderful story about Amelia Island. The changing exhibits are varied and special. Great educational programs are offered each month.
