  • A place worth visiting. I had the great pleasure of organizing a few Art exhibitions of my works there. Employees are real professionals, very nice people. The permanent exhibition is dedicated to the history of St. Helena. The souvenir shop has a large selection of items . The museum is located in the center of the town. There is a lot of parking spaces around. @theartofszymon

This is what its like , a 1960s sitcom , strange at first but very honest and happy and welcoming people. The island has a steep history , loads of interesting and very historical things and people have been to tis island
