Really enjoyed this small, island museum. Was caught off guard as to political history...Sit down and watch the informative video. Docent was friendly and knowledgable. Museum is located near what was originally the "town center". Generously support these local historians. One hour max.

This little museum is a well-hidden jewel on the island. You can learn a lot about the island history and the atrocities the US Marine did with the island and its population. Take the time to watch all the video documentaries they have available. *HINT* If you want to buy some island memorabilia buy it here, it’s far cheaper than... More

You might as well learn about Culebra by visiting its Museum of History. It has a nice display. A history of the naval bombings of the island also.

Loved getting in to see this little museum. It has so many pictures and the lady that was there was so friendly and gave us great tidbits about the history of Culebra and its people. I really loved the very old pictures they had of the island.

This museum has the whole history of the island of Culebra. It is very interesting and bonafide must visit to understand what the people of Culebra have gone through and why they protect so much this piece of heaven. History buffs or just curious people will enjoy this place. Serves as a temporary break from the beach life.

Great place, we were able to visit this museum when we were driving to Zoni beach,they don't charge for entrance but they do ask for a $1.00 donation. This museum is a great place to learn about Culebra's history.
