  • St. Mary's Submarine Museum
    St. Marys, the site of Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base?one of the world's two Trident submarine bases?was a natural choice for a museum devoted to the Silent Service. Yet the curators and collectors went above and beyond. The finished dive into deep-sea history is the largest of its kind in the South and the fifth largest in the country, giving a comprehensive look at life under the water. Size: 20,000 savaged artifacts, paintings, models, and photographs spread across 5,000 square feet Eye Catcher: replicas of torpedoes and WWII deep-sea diving suits Crown Jewel: the museum's modern, working periscope, which gives kids of all ages the chance to see if there's another museum sneaking up on them Don't Miss: a display honoring the eight submariners who received the Medal of Honor Hidden Gems: previously classified WWII Patrol Reports?the museum houses more than 99% of all such documents

  • Amelia Island Museum of History
    The Amelia Island Museum of History is the fortuitous result of circumstance. In 1975, a committee from the Duncan Lamont Clinch Historical Society gathered to found a history museum for Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island. Meanwhile, local collector William Decker was studiously acquiring historical documents and artifacts from the area?a lot whose pieces numbered in the thousands. When Decker died, the collection passed on to his son, a noted altruist, and just like that the Amelia Island Museum had its bones. Today, the museum's exhibits examine local culture of the Timucua Native American tribe, Spanish and French explorers, pirates, and Victorian-era residents. Museum guides are not restricted to the grounds, and often helm tours of the island's haunted locales, historic Centre Street, and Fernandina Beach's north end?with a focus on history from the mid-18th to 19th centuries.
