“Quaint and worth stopping at if you have the time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

It's somewhat difficult to catch this place open but is a nice place to stop at to see some of the history and artifacts of the island. It is located on the way to Zoni beach. I wouldn't put this place at the top of my list of things to do if you are only going to be on the island for a day or two, but if you have the time with a longer stay I would recommend checking the museum out!

“Great little museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Thanks to Luz for showing us around this lovely little museum. You must try and see it while you are in Culebra. The video is worth the trip. It tells the history of the island and relationship with the navy through the eyes of older Culebrensians. There are also many interesting archaeological displays. The building has been restored by volunteers and is beautiful.

“Small but interesting museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We stopped here on the way back from biking to Zoni. We had gotten lots of sun, and the AC felt wonderful. The museum is in an old house and costs just a few bucks. It had a small but interesting selection of some early pottery and such, and the other highlight is a film that details the history of Culebra, complete with testimony from old-timers you might then see on their porches somewhere in Dewey!
