A major attraction of St. Vincent is its dramatic landscape. Born of thousands of years of volcanic activity, the island draws daring climbers from all over, who confront its vertical challenges with climbing shoes and belaying ropes in hand.

The Botanical Gardens celebrated its 240th anniversary in 2005, making it the oldest such establishment in the western hemisphere. At the entrance of the gardens is the National Archaeological Museum, housing artifacts from St. Vincent and the Grenadine islands' history.

A bit grisly, perhaps, but well-intentioned, Doctor Cecil Cyrus of St. Vincent began a record of diverse diseases and infirmities encountered while serving for over 40 years as a doctor in his adopted home of St. Vincent. The resulting collection of over 800 original photographs and as many as 700 medical specimens resulted in the Doctor Cecil Cyrus Museum, opened in 2002. Intrigued by what he called the "clinical goldmine" of great and varied diseases and infirmities of the area, the good doctor began to keep physical records of his work and findings. Dr. Cyrus is lovingly referred to as the "surgeon of the West Indies. The museum has two section: the photo displays and specimens, and non-medical items.
