Good small museum

This is a good place to spend an hour or so learning the history of the area. It is well laid out and the gift shop has some good books

In the historic district of Fernandina Beach.

The old Nassau Co. jail, houses the local history museum. So much history in a small package. Many exhibits view and read. Located in an area with many restaurants and shops.
