  • History and museums are a lifelong avocation. AIM is in a small building but loaded with information on the islands' surprisingly colorful history. The only negative - our tour docent. Frankly, was worst I've ever encountered. I feel badly for saying so, but he needs to organize his thoughts into a coherent presentation. Wasted 2 hours of my time constantly repeating confusing stories about Amelia's flags. He cost you 2 extra stars above.
  • Nice little museum. We arrived just in time for a tour with a guide. Amelia island has so much more history than I ever new of. Worth checking it out is your interested in history.
  • Great historical museum, all about the Florida history back in the 1400's. Inexpensive and highly recommended!
  • Excellent displays of 400+ years of history on Amelia Island. Docent-led tours at 10 and 2 daily are included in price of admission and are well worth one's time. Temporary exhibit changes every few months. Walking tours of historic district available as well as pub crawl and ghost tour. Highly recommended.
  • A fascinating and well done display of the rich history of Amelia Island. Great rainy day activity. Highly recommend!
