Nice little museum on the history/culture of the islands housed in a historic building. Gives a good insight into the history and culture as well as a few other bits. Good little gift shop, worth doing if passing.

First, a hint: the museum is free to residents on the first Saturday of the month, but it is open only from 10h00 to 14h00. (Not that you need more than an hour). Observations: my favourite part was the gift shop. I think prices are...More
