“A good place to start on your visit to Dominica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This nice little museum has very good displays and is concise in describing the island's history. Does not have air conditioning, so can be stuffy by mid afternoon - go in the morning.

“A must when in Dominica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The island is small and there is not a lot to do. However it is very pretty and is well worth a visit. The scenery is magnificent and the people are pleasant. In particular its museum, right on the waterfront, is an interesting place to go. It is well put together and is really interesting and informative.

“Small but first class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Having been to the Caribbean a number of times this was our first time to Dominica and were very much looking forward to it. On arrival for the day on a cruise ship numerous passengers said there was nothing to see and it was a 'boring' island.

Once we had left the ship we met the usual tussle for locals wanting to take you on various trip and tours and we picked a tour with Skippy, (you can't miss him he has one leg, but is not the driver!) What a fantastic trip we had, just amazing.

After a walk around and a cup of local coffee we found this small but very interesting museum. The lady at reception was very helpful and at just $3 each entrance fee it was a bargain.

Everything was well laid out and information about items made it all the more interesting. Absolutely stunning view from the veranda which finished a perfect far from boring day. Highly recommended.

“Roseau Museum, a great way to discover Dominica's History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The museum is a great option if you want something to walk to. It is located across the street and to the right of the cruise ship pier and is a good bargain for the $3.00 entrance fee. $1.00 fee if you need a bathroom. You will find the staff to be extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the Carib Indians and Kalinago people. Picture taking is allowed in the museum and there are some very colorful displays with nice examples of vintage clothing.
