This is a great Centre which explains and animates a little of the Islands history & heritage in a short but entertaining 15 minute presentation. Well worth a visit and the views from the interpretation Centre are just as good as elsewhere in Shirley Heights.

The views from the observation areas overlooking the harbor are awesome, but the 15 minutes audio visual presentation is a bit outdated. Some good information when you can hear the audio portion.
