Visiting the fort is a great rainy day activity or if you just need some time out of the sun. The fort has been restored and offers beautiful views of Isabel and the harbor. There is no entrance fee, although donations are accepted and appreciated....More

We love to learn about the places we are visiting and this museum was full of interesting information. My children were fascinated by the map of the bombs on and around the island. The views were great as well.

Upgrading the exhibitions after upgrading the outdoor painting. The museum is the center of Vieques social justice and has a good book store on the resistance and access to local artists and talent.

We visited the museum twice while there and loved the views, and the staff at the museum were so fun and kind! Great place for pictures and history, as well as art.

You wont be there long, but there is a lot of history, (dont) take a piece of it home, you can get in trouble!

"Without firing a short, we defeated the US Navy." Go to read about the local people's sad but ultimately triumphant history with the US Navy, which took over the island and moved all the residents inland in the 1940s, leaving undetonated bombs throughout their homeland....More
