Mosaic Jekyll Island Museum

Details

Mosaic, the completely renovated and reimagined Jekyll Island Museum, guides you through the island's rich cultural and natural history. In-depth and interactive exhibits draw you in, while stunning visuals and audio tell the tale of this magical island. Constructed completely within the existing footprint of the historic stables building, Mosaic highlights the building’s construction with high lofted ceilings and open space.

Throughout its history, Jekyll Island is a place where people have imagined an alternative. People have come here to be different, and they still do. From Native Americans, to English colonists, to French privateers, to the members of the Jekyll Island Club - people have imagined Jekyll Island as a place where dreams can be built.

The Island's present day prominence as a beloved vacation destination was prefaced by an era of unrivaled status and prestige. Beginning in 1886 and continuing for over four gilded decades, the Island was the exclusive domain of the renowned Jekyll Island Club - the winter retreat for some of America's most elite families.

We invite you to explore this rich, varied history at the Jekyll Island Museum and its Historic Sites - the Jekyll Island Club National Historic Landmark District, the Horton House and the Wanderer Memorial.

The Jekyll Island Club was founded in 1886 as a winter retreat for America’s wealthiest families.  Among its members were such powerful men as J.P. Morgan, Joseph Pulitzer, William Rockefeller and William K. Vanderbilt.  In its heyday, the Club was referred to as the “richest, the most exclusive, and most inaccessible club in the world.” The site is now one of the largest ongoing restoration projects in the southeastern United States.

Using an historic building for your special occasions offers a unique backdrop that cannot be matched.  The atmosphere of the Historic District ensures a memorable experience for guests. Whether it is for a simple meeting, an office retreat, a wedding reception, or a reunion, there are a variety of facilities available for you and your guests to enjoy. We are here and available to answer any questions you may have in the process.

Exhibitions feature objects and photographs from our extensive collections and introduce you to the rich heritage of Jekyll Island, whose social and architectural legacy is reflected in the Jekyll Island Club National Historic Landmark District - a 240-acre, riverfront compound and one of the largest, ongoing restoration projects in the southeastern United States.

The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $9 for adults (13+ years), $7 for children (4 to 12 years), free for children 3 and under
