This was the second time I visited the museum and it was my aunt's first visit. Jennifer is very welcoming and has great knowledge on the island's history and inside information on the island. I love history and this museum doesn't disappoint. You get a great impression on how life on the island was like years ago! A must see!

Jennifer was very informative. It's good to hear from someone who is the descendent of one of the founding families.

A charming museum visit in a charming village. We strolled by on a day they were closed and then came again before it opened so check the schedule unless you are walking off a meal.

Quaint museum. Parlor is sort of a picture gallery. Dining area with China. Real original kitchen with a few old style updates. Nice informative caretaker

In was particularly interested in the history of the island and its inhabitants and enjoyed talking to the friendly lady who runs it. Opening hours are rather limited, though, generally 10 am to 3 pm, although it will stay open longer if one call to arrange a time. The museum is located in an attractive old house, one of the...
