Museum Planet presents a comprehensive narrated digital tour of Governor's Island just off the the foot of Manhattan.

Governor's Island now a park has had many uses over the years. It held Confederate prisoners during the Civil War. You will see the Castle Williams prison. The island was even used as a quarantine station. Fort Jay was built because of the threat of a war with France. The famous Rodman gun was first installed here. This simple tour will take you around the island and show you what there is to see. Hard to believe this country-like setting is next to bustling Manhattan

You can stop and start the tour; jump around in it; stop it to read the often extensive text and enlarge all the photos with a ‘swoosh’ of your fingers.

The tour is better than a large and well-researched book. Museum Planet takes you there: 19 photographs, 4.1 minutes of audio and 3,337 words, plus biographies.
