Welcome to the only FREE museum in town! A pleasant historical adventure awaits you at the Historical Trust's free musuem, the only free museum in town. Tours take about 30 minutes, and you'll be led by knowledgeable local historians who love to tell the remarkable stories of St. Thomas' exciting history. Ask our experts about anything you have seen in St. Thomas and get the real facts! Genuine artifacts from the days of pirates, the age of steam ships and 100 year old 3-D images mesmerize history buffs along with dozens of antique photos from the late 1900s and early 20th century, and a sensational collection of Antique West Indian furniture. Learn about our 1867 tsunami, and the ominous threat that was the real reason the U.S. purchased the islands from Denmark. The best little museum in town, for visitors or locals. If you are local, please ask to see the "riddle picture", and see if you can identify the image. HOURS: Open Tuesdays through Thursday's 10-3:30pm or by appointment.
