Collections

There are so many more artifacts in our collection than can be displayed in any one exhibit at the museum. To share our collection with you, the Museum & Archives will post photographs of featured artifacts for our website visitors. Each month, the curator will select an object that tells us something important about the history of the island. Stay tuned to see what we’ll reveal next.
