“Surprising Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I wasn't too enthused about going to this museum, but my husband was curious, so I agreed. I was really amazed with the area's History and the unique way in which it was presented. Our docent was top notch, but humble and appreciated others input as well. Very nicely done!

“A rainy day project!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We took a 2 hour tour of this museum with our guide Michael who was a joy to be with and came away with much knowledge of the local history..in particular the "8 Flags" of Amelia. We highly recommend a visit.

“Take the special tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We visited the museum last year and had a great time. We took the special guided tour and recieved a great presentation of the history of the region and Fernandina Beach. My wife and I both enjoy the historical background of Fernandina beach.
