A Small Island with a Big History

The Campobello Island Library and Museum celebrates the history of our small island through storytelling and visual narrative. From the moment you enter our historic building, you will be immersed in a spellbinding journey through time, one that chronicles events from the earliest indigenous communities, through various settlers and would be conquerors, to the modern-day reality of fishing and tourism. We look forward to hosting you in our small piece of paradise, stimulating your imagination, and inspiring your sense of adventure.
