Yes, the museum is small, yet considering the size of the island, we thought it presented some good snapshots of the island's history and culture. We enjoyed the displays, video and learning about some of the people who helped develop the island.

Nice little museum on the history/culture of the islands housed in a historic building. Gives a good insight into the history and culture as well as a few other bits. Good little gift shop, worth doing if passing.
