Fort Grey overlooks the infamous and dangerous Hanois reefs, the site of many shipwrecks.  The 19th century building was restored as a museum in 1976, aiming to educate people about the area and to display salvaged artifacts and related illustrations. Some of the wrecks with recoverable artifacts include HMS Boreas, SS Yorouba and the Titanic.  Although the museum is quite small, divers and wreck enthusiasts visiting the island would thoroughly enjoy the displays.
