Very interesting history of the island. Lots of unique items to see. The tram ride is not free. It is a little pricey. We were on a budget trip and did not take the tram tour.

Very good introduction to the original Jekyl Island Club: how it was started, who belonged, who worked there, how the Fed began, etc. Very interesting. Nicely displayed. Very nice gift shop for souvenir shoppers. A great way to start your tour of the historical district.

Trolley tour was very informative. Saw inside of Moss and Mistletoe cottages on this tour. Was a difficult ride for kids and elderly as getting on and off the trolley for stops was a bit difficult. Hour and a half tour with no potty break...More
