An educational experience for all ages. The Center has done an excellent job displaying and explaining their mission and the facts of Sea Turtles. This is done with many hands on exhibits for all ages. Children as well as adults leave this facility with a much better understanding of this amazing creature. Located in the Jekyll Island Historic Area, makes for a nice interesting visit. When visiting the Golden Isles this is a must, you will not be disappointed.

This museum is small but it educates about sea turtles in an interesting and effective way. There are a number of exhibits about sea turtle nesting, where hatchlings go once they reach the sea, what dangers they face in their life journey and sadly explains that only one in 4000 live to adulthood. There are also tanks where turtles recovering from injuries are kept and you may watch them being fed or treated. The gift shop is quite good as well. Everyone should visit this place to learn how we can be more responsible stewards of these gentle creatures.
