I was glad we stumbled into this cute little museum. It was neat how close you could get to all the artifacts. Very informative.
Nestled in one of the winding steep streets of St Georges, the capital of Grenada, is the country’s national museum. Fortunately, it is within easy of Grand Anse where I was staying. The day I visited, there was some minor renovation work being undertaken, which I would have taken a while to notice if I hadn’t been told and given... More
Okay folks, this is a small and disorganized museum. It is also very inexpensive and worth every penny. I urge you to visit the local museum wherever you go (including your hometown). The Grenada National Museum will surely have a something to enhance your island visit. This is the kind of place where you will find a little bit of... More
This is a small museum but one filled with facts. It shows the start of the war, the airlift of the students at Ross University and contains pictures of the phone booth (which is still there) where the call came in advising of the start of the war. There is a lot of history in a small spot and something... More
Oh dear! For a national museum it is dire. It is like a private collection in the back of someone's garage! The official tea service presented by HM the Queen on their independence hasn't seen a duster or a damp cloth since it was put in its glass cabinet 25-30 years ago. There is some useful information about the original... More
There is clearly a lack of funding here, but visit the museum and show your support. There are treasures in there that must be protected. Some very interesting displays and the curator is an interesting and friendly gent to chat to.
The museum was very well put together with all sorts of artifacts describing the current and past history of the island. I was on a stroll through the downtown/Carenage area and so happened to see the museum open. The building is very vintage-y, two-story, but I really enjoyed the walk-through.
I visited the museum after visiting the Market on Saturday morning. It is small but it is nice to find out a bit about the history of Grenada. It is only USD 2.50, which isn't much at all.
Yes the museum is small but at least by attending these places it helps to understand the islands an puts much needed money back into the island. Being on a cruise this time round of visiting the ships do not seem to bring much revenue into the islands. The people are friendly and very helpful,will,always give extra info if asked.... More
This museum is small, and has quite a mix of exhibits. It isn't fancy, and won't take long to go through, but it does present some interesting history of Grenada. I enjoyed the animal displays upstairs (the butterflies, the birds) - it enabled me to identify a hawk I saw circling the villas where we were staying. I also learned... More
