Rueckert Collection

A recent major acquisition, the maps and books of collector Hans Rueckert are now on display in the Historical Gallery and the Library.

The backbone of the library is a recently acquired collection from Hans Reuckert. 

Hans lived on the island in the 1970s and 1980s and collected books and maps from sources all around the World. 

In 2017 the Museum was able to purchase this valuable collection with the help of generous supporters.
