It's a small museum, hot inside, and doesn't have a lot, but you can get a quick overview of the island's history there.

I visited the museum while on a cruise. We ported at St George's so I took a stroll into town and caught a few sites. I love to visit forts and museums while traveling, so this island was perfect for that. He museum was small, but had enough to keep me busy for about 40 minutes. The history was interesting... More

We visited the museum today. The building is packed full of artefacts and posters detailing the history of Grenada. Including details about the past of slavery, the coat of arms, the gaining of independence and farming. If you love museums, this is definitely somewhere to head as you look around St Georges. Entry is 5EC per adult. The building is... More

There are so many things to like about this little museum. Here are some of my favourites: - the colonial architecture. You don't get to see inside many of these buildings and this one is in pretty good, unrestored state. Wonderful internal etched glass panels, window shades and architraves. There's a large room upstairs used for community events; it was... More

The museum continues to improve. It is much tidier and better organised than when we first visited some years ago. I suspect it might benefit from a fresh pair of eyes to stand back an look critically at the displays. A more coherent sequence of the displays would establish a timeline of the island's fascinating and varied history. There are... More

This museum does the best it can to patch Grenada's beginnings to present time...although some of the displays can be rather basic, the visitor can get a good idea of the history of Grenada. Some interesting artifacts are in it's display cases. More could be done to the 2nd story display on the 1983 US invasion. That was very disappointing.... More

This museum is definitely worth visiting we spent an hour or so pursuing the many displays learning about Grenada's history that I was not familiar with

Visited as part of a tour group. We really enjoyed this....lots of interesting things to see, wish we had had more time. It does seem a bit mixed up and messy but maybe that just added to the quaint feel of the place !

A very interesting museum collection highlighting the ancient and more modern history and culture of the island. There are many posters and a lot of reading to do but if at all interested in the island and its history (including the military coup of 1982/1983) they are well worth reading. Includes a collection of various artefacts. Overall, well worth the... More

We were close to the museum, when the heavens opened, so were doubly lucky! The exhibits gave a relaxed and informative view of the island - it was an hour very well spent.
