This FREE opportunity cows visitors to ascend the lighthouse for magnificent views and vistas of the easter coast of Abaco/ marsh harbour. Run by donation only, this is a worthwhile stop when going to Hope Town.

AFTER you climb the lighthouse visit this Museum...the history is worth leaning on your visit to the Abaco's.

This is a nice little museum and in a short visit we got a sense for the history of Elbow Cay. Nothing "awesome" but charming and worthwhile.

In an old home in the very heart of Hope Town, the museum was certainly a labor of love for a number of people. Since it is housed in an old home of the era, an air of authenticy permeates that otherwise not be found. Chock-a-block full of old pics, old artifacts, and well, lots of old stuff, this museum...

I waited till the weather was lousy, which was less than a day total out of six! Nonetheless, it is worth seeing this museum, as it gives some insight into the history and struggles faced by these islands. There was maybe a 20-minute video about some of the Bahamas, which was interesting as well as local exhibits. I'm not a... More

Learn a bit about Elbow Cay's history. The loyalists, hurricanes, wrecking, and more! The staff is friendly, seems to be all volunteer and committed to the Cay. Your vacation will mean more to you after an hour here.

The museum is set-up like a Loyalist home but has a video room, shell collection, genealogy records & a gift shop. My favorite parts are the old photos of the locals and the harbour especially with the sea planes landed just outside the lighthouse. The museum is run by volunteers and is usually manned but if you ask at Ebb... More
