This is a must see on Monhegan Is. , especially if you love to find out about the history of the place you are visiting. There are historical treasures through out all the rooms so take your time to view them. I was so impressed how well everything was displayed. Thank you to all who are making the effort to preserve Monhegan's history.

Although this museum is not large, they pack a lot into it. You have to go slow and read everything. There are so many great stories portrayed here of lighthouse keepers, fisherman, education and even a circus.

One section has the island history - the newer section features a changing art exhibit.The museum is located at the top of Light house hill with spectacular views of the harbor and neighboring island of Manana.

This our second year staying on Monhegan, and on our last day on the island, decided to visit the museum. I was very impressed by the wide range of artifacts from the island's history that are on display. I could easily have spent over an hour learning about the island, and role of a lighthouse keeper.

The art museum is across the lawn, and expertly curated. They have a wide range of works on paper and canvas, and brings the artist community of Monhegan alive.
