The costumes and colors are fantastic.We even learned how to play, some island made, bongo drums. Excellent tour.......
see the costumes and hear the history of the Junkanoo. You can even touch most of the exhibits and evens encourages you to try on a headpiece. The back classroom for the kids is fabulous and keeps the heritage alive for the young locals. We rang the buzzer before 9 and she let us in . Was informative and educational... More
After reading the Bahama government schedule of events that listed the national float parade as July 19th, cultural explosion as July 20th, and junkanoo run-outs every Saturday we found the parade was July 10th, cultural expo was in June and there was one run-out on July 10th. We tried to go to this Expo but were told that it was... More
This quaint museum is an uphill walk from our cruise ship but well worth the effort. Arlene Ferguson remembers years of Junkanoo celebrations and she has collected a multitude of home-made costumes and instruments and installed them in her former family home. For a drop-in feel of one dollar, we participated in a hands-on cacaphony of cowbell ringing, drumming and... More
although the costumes themselves were fabulous, there were only a few on display dotted in between lots of small touristy stalls. it is free though so if you're in the area, you might as well walk by

Pros: The hosts were so energetic and you could tell this was their passion & they loved what they are doing. Costumes are gorgeous! Cons: Was... More
We spent half an hour here learning about the history of Junkanoo, the costumes, the music and the drinks. Educational for adults. Kids (and kids at heart) will love making their own music with drums, cowbells and whistles. It does get loud (!) but it's fun. We got to sample some soft drinks made especially for Junkanoo, play music, and... More
The Junkanoo Educational center was a stop on our excursion. It is 30 minutes of my life I will never get back. We hated it! It is also VERY loud. They have you in a small room and give everyone whistles and metal cow bells. You are instructed to make noise. Oh my we had a headache after leaving there.
We was able to sit around table and have sun with other people from other places. The music and the live band were the entrainment for us without spending any money for it. Just a tip because it was good
We just had the oppurtunity of going on a tour to the Jankanoo Educulture that is run by Arlene and her husband Silbert. The do such a wonderful job at explaining the history of Junkanoo and why it is so important to the Bahamian culture. We spent around an hour with them in a group of 15. The museum is... More
