Founded in 1976, the Isle of Wight County Museum tells the story of the county through its interactive exhibits including a turn-of-the-century country store as well as displays interpreting colonial history, the Smithfield ham industry, the Blackwater River, the Civil War, and the Cold War.
It’s the home of the world’s oldest ham and the world’s oldest peanut!
