“Amazing touch of gilded age history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Although the weather was cool and rainy, this stay at the island was memorable. The museum was very informative, and the tram ride was essential to get a full picture of the "cottages" and people of the early days of the island.

“Hey, it was free!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

We were looking to get out of the condo and decided to stop and look around. The kids and I learned about the history of the island and had an enjoyable time. We bought a few items in the museum shop.
