Amelia Island Museum Of History

Eight flags have flown over the shores of tiny Amelia Island since the French landed here in 1562. The Amelia Island Museum of History's numerous permanent exhibits and artifacts explore the area's complex history, while walking tours down historic Centre Street and through old cemeteries provide visitors with a vibrant sense of the island's unique history.
