We found this place on our way to Shirley's Heights. Nicely done presentation of the islands history, suitable for all ages. The staff was very helpful, and the view from up there is quite nice. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

The presentation show, moving around the room in lights, sound, and displays gives an interesting multimedia presentation of the island's history. Outside, the views are great as well. The grounds also contain historic ruins ans a disolay of 18th century artifacts collected from the island.
