Visit the Amelia Island Museum of History  

Amelia Island is home to numerous museums and historic sites where you can learn about the island’s history. One of our favorites is the Amelia Island Museum of History which showcases the region’s history. The museum places an emphasis on spoken history and also offers daily tours at the museum. 

The Amelia Island Museum makes for a great stop for an hour or two and you are sure to leave with a better understanding of the many major events that unfolded on the island over the past couple hundred years. As an added bonus, the museum building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009 and was used as the Nassau County jail starting in the 1930s.
