- There are two parts of this museum. Every aspect of the island's history, starting at its formation and winding up at the present, is covered in the permanent exhibit in the Rice Building. Historic displays include ancient artifacts, scientific diagrams and turn-of-the-century photographs. The Wilcox Building houses the Mezzanine Gallery, which features an ever-changing display of works by professional and amateur local artists, as well as other exhibits and the gift shop. The museum-sponsored events are geared toward the local community and tourists.
