“The things that make Amelia Island’s history significant are not housed at the library or a university. If you want to know how Amelia Island played a role in how we all got here, you do that research at our Museum.”
Rob Hicks, Local Author
“The Amelia Island Museum of History ensures that the voices and wisdom of Northeast Floridians are preserved and heard by future generations.”
