Examples of testimonials shared to date:

"I brought my parents to the Museum. My dad (from Chicago) was a life-long Cubs fan. He loved the Cubs exhibit - it brought back so many memories. They also loved the "Hollywood" connection with all the old stars. It was fun sharing it with them and seeing them understand why we love the Island so much."

- Todd Hallenbeck

Motivation for Supporting the Museum: "History of the island and a great venue for bringing visitors to the island."  - Paul Kellogg

"The recent Museum exhibit covering the Bird Park, brought back happy memories as a 7-year-old and getting to accompany the Caretaker around as he fed the birds and actually getting in with the large (Emperor) Penguins and being able to feed them some fish."  - Elizabeth Renton-Snyder
