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.

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.
