  • Islands social history not much WW2 bit dark inside gift shop almost as big staff very pleasant staff  more »
  • Quirky collection of wooden buildings just off the main highway. Definitely worth a visit. Good informative displays, albeit somewhat dated, but that adds to the appeal of the museum. Friendly staff.....  more »
  • Only saw the main building and surrounding structures in evening before they closed. Is was small so it took only about an hour to complete all. All about Historical photos and wood crafts for Solomon also some weapons display from WWII. Don't expect much from her but still not a bad place to be visit.
