Quaint little museum, with a great deal of local history and artifacts well worth a visit, the views outside the museum are stunning.

Takes 20 minutes by car from Crown Point. Can take many scenic photos, visit the museum and there is a great view of the ocean. Can see ships in Scarborough. It is very breezy, It is located next to a hospital, so many vehicles pass up and down. Can also take a taxi from Scarborough.

Fort King George is located on top of Scarborough and requires taxi ride to get here. I wouldn't recommend walking because it's hot and far for average walk. Just hire any taxis and arrange pick up when your done. Allow 2hrs. minimum to walk around the sites and it's fun learning for kids too. It's a fort so expect to... More

Interesting museum with friendly staff, offered their personal bottle of water as had walked up the hill in scorching sun, unfortunately no food or drink available for purchase on site.....bring it with you from town. Whilst the museum is interesting it is the panaromic views from the top that are good with very well maintained grounds. Excellent for picnics particularly... More

Visited Fort King George as I was aware that there was a rich history associated with this place since it was built in the 1780s and that the view of the island of Tobago was quite commanding. From the fort, you can see a wide sweep of the windward coast, stretching away as far as the eye can see, panning... More

Great guide and views, be prepared to be surprised by the number of nations which have claimed sovereignty over the island during the past three hundred plus years.

This was a great place to visit. The views are amazing. The grounds are beautiful. The museum has great artifacts to look at. There was a guy outside with a little gift table selling small items, really cool guy, ask him to sing and play his guitar he is great. This is a place I would revisit!!

A place not to be missed! Beautiful grounds. Overlooks the town and harbor of capital Scarborough. I could take a book and read here for a good half day. There is a very informative museum on site. There is a small charge for the museum. No matter how hot it is, there is always a breeze here. I visit here... More
