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.

The place was made for tourists. Lot of parking space, friendly staff, cheap entrance fee. They show you how natives lived long time ago.
