A really nice small museum of local history and lots of different military info. Some older videos to watch and several displays to look at. A nice play area for kids. We stop here most years when we stay on the island.

We enjoyed looking around at the different exhibits. It's small in there but packed with a lot of different things about the area. The price is right so you can't go wrong!
