  • Interesting display of local history with many artifacts, pictures and narratives. It would have been nice to have more English translations of the narratives. $5 admission fee for a not large...  more »
  • Great building and fort but half of the exhibits are in spanish with no translation. Shame as the history looked very interesting $5 entry, lasted half an hour due to spanish exhibits.  more »

  • Pleasant little stop that gives you some history you might not have known otherwise about the island. Just wish there was a bit more to it. Also seemed like there was a good amount more to the fort interior that you dont see. Still, a good way to kill an hour.
  • This is an old Spanish fortress. Canon's are still present. When we were there the museum was closed, but just walking around the grounds is lovely.
