Long Island Museum
This museum is part of the National Museum of The Bahamas/Antiquities, Monuments and Museums Corporation, which is the principal heritage, conservation, and preservation agency in The Bahamas. It is, therefore, committed to the preservation and interpretation of the history and culture of Long Island for Bahamians, visitors, and future generations.
It features exhibits showcasing the history, culture, and customs of Long Island ̶̶ how the homesteads used to look in the old days before the conveniences of modern age took effect. Thatched roofs, oil lamps, goose irons, turbot skin scrubbers, mortar and pestles are all reminiscent of the old days.
You can also find straw work, seashells, a historic mural of Long island, the instruments used in Rake 'N Scrape music, Junkanoo costumes, and a gift shop where you can purchase locally-made handicraft items.
It is easily accessible to persons who are physically challenged or in a wheelchair, but care should be taken when going up the stairs into the building and moving around inside.
