Big John : ) took us on a tour there on our way to swim with Stingrays. Interesting little place to see, get some cool pictures and even had a great lunch there.

We stopped here on our Pink Panther Tour. The history is all on the walls for you to read and in display cases with found pieces of history.
Great to see some of the history of the area. There is a $2 donation pp. If your not on a tour or much into history I don't think you would be interested.

whilst it was amazing to see a restored windmill, the surroundings are in need of closer attention and i also wish the visitors would be careful not to litter

Really not worth going to. Windmills not used for over 100 years. Small exhibition of tools used for sugar cane production.

We really didn't get to tour Betty's Hope as it was mainly a stop for our picnic lunch on the longer island safari tour that day, but we did see the beautiful windmill and the excellent job of restoration that is being done. They have removed the sails as the mill has become fragile. Betty's Hope has the potential to be a really important interpretation center if effort is put into the site. I did do a bit of walking around. There is a picnic area, restroom and some work has been done historically, but a lot more could be done to make it really interesting.
