Calendar of Events
If you have not been to the museum for a while, please visit and see our “new look.” In addition to replacing ALL of the old display cases, re-arranging our existing exhibits, and setting up new ones, we have installed new high impact glass doors that brings the outside in!
We think you will be very pleasantly surprised. The museum now has an open, yet cozy atmosphere, and our displays evoke a sense of nostalgia and also a reminder of how hard life was in those “good old days.” We welcome you to Museum of the Islands.
