A few relics from early history of surrounding area. A few interesting old photos. An old house of an example of the architecture from that time period. Only cost $2 so a reasonable fee for about 1 hour visit.

We didn't get there in time to enjoy the museum; however, the Park Ranger told us that the Whitman House would still be open for a little bit. Very interesting house and collections. Worth a drop in, if you're on the Key.
