“Very interesting”

Jekyll Island Museum
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Not sure what to expect on the island when we saw the trolley sitting out front of the museum/visitors center. The person inside was very helpful, told me about the trolley tour and museum. I highly reccommend the trolley tour, as it gives you the history of the island and lets you inside two of the cottages. Very informative. The museum has lots of pictures and details of the island, and the gift shop had lots of local ware for sale.

Take the trolley tour. Well worth the money. We had a very interesting and knowlegable tour gruide. His love of his job was contagious.

There is a tour that goes from the museum around the historic district, a jeep towing a series of carts. The audio was loud enough to hear easily, and the history was facinating. It includes entry to two of the historic "cottages" as well. We really enjoyed it.

Helpful staff and the price is right. Good video. Not a lot of history here, just a very quick rundown of the "cottages" of the rich. Souvenir shop was better than the history. They sell the tickets for the trolley tour which seemed to have a brisk trade in tourists. Worth a quick look, see, while waiting for the tour to start.

The museum is free. If you are going to get a sense of the history of this island, you definitely should drop by and browse through the memorabilia, watch the free movie, look at some of the artifacts and see the old pictures. After visiting the museum, I got a much better sense of the history of this island and made me appreciate things so much more. As I drove around, I pondered what life was like as one of the millionaires who visited decades ago. You'll appreciate the island much more and it's free to check out...
