My family loves history and museums and we were not disappointed with this little gem. They offer a lot of history in a small space and very good for local genealogy. Best of all it was FREE! We did make a donation though.

We stopped in one afternoon and were fascinated. The docents were very willing to share their knowledge of the history of Pass-a-Grille Island. We have been visiting Pass-a-Grille for many years and definitely learned many things we did not know.

We have taken several folks to this museum. We find something each time that we may have missed the time before. We love the old pictures and the story the museum tells about the area.

This museum is a real gem and not to be missed. It details history of the area that is no longer apparent with many, many interesting displays. There is no pressure to buy anything, and the staff are very helpful and not intrusive. Well work...More

After being in Pass a Grille many times I finally stopped into this museum on a rainy day when the beach wasn't an option. Very interesting and worth a visit.
