Barbados had an incredibly rich, long, and complex history. It is well explained in this small museum housed in the nations parliament building. If parliament is in session it takes a tiny amount of extra effort to visit as some complex gates are locked. As a historian, I knew a bit about the island. But came away with a much... More

I was on a cruise boat and had a day to spend in Barbados. I decided to visit Bridgetown on my own and having read about the museum, walked into town. At 10 am on Monday December 22, 2014, a lady in the hall of the museum told me that the person selling tickets was not here yet. I asked... More

We valued the comprehensive introduction to Barbados history on the first part of this visit, followed by the worthy tributes to the National Heroes. The admission data implied that a visit to the Parliament Building was included, but we found no open access to that building, nor did we find any explanation as to why it wasn't accessible.

You can learn all about Barbados history and take a break from the heat! There was a small charge but worth it. This building is across from the Parliament (which was in session, so we could not get in) and has been used for many governmental purposes over the years (the post office, the treasury, this lovely museum). It is... More
