This museum is a little jewel in the Abaco Islands. Lots of nice artifacts and history of the town is shared with visitors. There is plenty to see so plan to spend a little bit if time exploring!

This FREE opportunity cows visitors to ascend the lighthouse for magnificent views and vistas of the easter coast of Abaco/ marsh harbour. Run by donation only, this is a worthwhile stop when going to Hope Town.

Learn a bit about Elbow Cay's history. The loyalists, hurricanes, wrecking, and more! The staff is friendly, seems to be all volunteer and committed to the Cay. Your vacation will mean more to you after an hour here.

The museum is set-up like a Loyalist home but has a video room, shell collection, genealogy records & a gift shop. My favorite parts are the old photos of the locals and the harbour especially with the sea planes landed just outside the lighthouse. The...More
