SHRIMPING MUSEUM

The Fernandina Beach Marine Welcome Center & Shrimping Museum is run under the auspices of the Amelia Island Museum of History. In 2010 the City of Fernandina Beach approached the Museum about creating a Welcome Center and Shrimping Museum. The Amelia Island Museum of History gladly stepped up because we believe in our maritime history and in the importance of educating our community, on the amazing part it has played in the development of our local, state, and national heritage.
