An educational center on the island has many interesting exhibits and posters, showing you what wildlife you will encounter. The museum is charming, and explains, through photographs and objects, the story of the Florida East Coast Railroad, and the people who worked on and inhabited the island.
There are many buildings open to the public, including the Bridge Tender's House, the Honeymoon Cottage and the Commissary. Picinic tables dot the island, and soda machines and restrooms are available.
