Cumberland Island Museum Visitor Center
Just one block from the waterfront, this museum houses a collection of articacts from Cumberland Island, Georgia.

This museum features remembrances of the famed Carnegie lifestyle and remnanats of the Timucuuan Indians who once inhabited the island. A moving exhibit of "The Forgotten Battle" demonstrates the dramatic eents that occurred when the last battle of the War of 1812 was foight at St. Marys Point Peter.

This is the first major effort to bring the island story to mainland facilities. A small portion of the total collection will be on display, primarily pieces that illustrate life on the barrier island. "These are objects that have never before been on public display," said curator John Mitchell. "We can learn from these items about how people lived in the past."

The museum houses a collection of artifacts from Cumberland Island and includes an exhibit area open to the public. The exhibition uses pieces from the collection to highlight the people of the island. The lives of Native Americans, African Americans, the Carnegie family as well as others who lived on the island in the 19th and 20th centuries are seen in the island environment. A new exhibit is now open in the Museum, the "Forgotten Invasion", (War of 1812).

Amenities are accessibility for mobility-impared and restrooms. Free admission and parking.
