A good way to get to know the story of the island. Some interactive displays and short films. Very interesting. There is also a shop and a small café area there.

The rooftop native specimen plants are a great start.
The museum is well presented using different formats throughout. We were amazed at the depth of history and geological information presented. The fun tests at various points would be great for children and adults alike. Informative, colourful and so interesting.

Thank Merdoc

Good for those who like to learn about where they are holidaying. Interactive quizzes and interesting information. Nice shop but pricey.
