Nice place to learn about San Andres history. They give you a tour of what a early settler home looked like . Great staff and nice place to have a cold drink after the tour.

It's nice to have a quick view of what life was like on the island. And the reggae dance lessons at the end were a fun surprise!

Small museum with a great little history. This is worth the stop if you are at all interested in the history of the island. Has some great little era time pieces that i wish were better preserved but the tour was insightful.

It's a nice well-maintaned house. It's a really small tour, however, nothing even close to a museum. Just a house, outside kitchen and bathroom. Fun to visit, nice to take a tour, but it won't keep your there for even 20 minutes.

Enjoyed the local dance performance and they also get you to go on the stage to dance with them. A small gift shop with local handcrafts and jewelries. Willing to take photos for us and with us.
