The displays were rudimentary but they got the idea across. National Park Service run site- friendly staff. Downtown and 1 block from water.

Spend an hour here and you will be amazed at the wealth of information and historic events that have formed the culture of this region. I recommend you visit here before touring Cumberland Island to make your trip come alive.

You can walk in, but it's first come, first served. Weekends and holidays are often full.

You need to check back with the ferry .. You can pay for the Park tour and the ferry in one payment .. Take the guided van tour by all means !! It was incredible.
