On a side street this historical building houses the museum. The entrance is free with the purchase of the Discovery train ticket. I spent 45 minutes there, but could have spent more if I had read all the displays. I found it very informative, from Pre-Columbian artefacts, to the natural and cultural history of the island, lighthouse, sugar mill artefacts,... More

This museum could be so much more if they cared about their history. Underfunded and poorly organised. Some neat stuff on the ground floor but not much of a story line to Grenada's history. The bird displays on the upper floor were old and rotting, the owl display had lost its glass so i suspect will soon be no more.... More

My wife and I spent about 30 minutes browsing about the Grenada National Museum. I enjoy history so it was neat to view the exhibits, especially the early colonial items. I wouldn't call this a "must-see" but if you have time to kill in St. George's I recommend you stop in and see things you might not otherwise see.

The museum itself is okay, it is not quite so organized as you will you expect from a national museum and it is a bit dusty. You won't get a deep insight of the history of Grenada, but an okay overview. Don't calculate to use too long time here.

Downhill from St.Geoge's Fort through the narrow labyrinth of uphill and downhill streets, we came finally to further our education of Grenada at this minuscule Grenada National Museum. This is a center fot the arts and culture opened in 1976, founded by the request of the Government. It's early aim was to give a small visual aid to the understanding... More

We went into St.George's on a Saturday to see the colourful market that had been recommended. We wandered away from the market and down a steep side street and found the museum. It's not interactive like many modern museums but the displays were authentic and told the story of Grenada and its history. It's not a massive place but we... More

We initially found the museum hard to find as the parking is on the opposite side of the block to the museum. The displays can be shabby but overall the is an interesting visit where some history is learned. N.B. If you walk from the Cruise Terminal go through the Sendall tunnel, a mini adventure in itself and then past... More

Fairly small museum and be warned that it can be hot and stuffy inside. However, still worth a visit with some excellent displays.

We cruised to Grenada A whole day we stayed here. One cannot deny this place is really gorgeous. Pedestrians and traffic funnel Through the narrow Sendall tunnel ‘Neath the town and fort (both called St. Georges). The alternative route’s a hill Which is hard for wheelchairs, still Through the tunnel, they drive with more care. A sudden tropical rain shower... More
