Very nice small museum showing the history of the island. Lots of information from pre-Columbian times through about 1985. Only problem was the lack of information on the last 30 years. We learned a lot seeing the various displays. Clearly this is a labor of love for those running it. We thought it very funny that the present from the... More

The museum has lots of artifacts. You'll need a couple of hours to read some of the info. It's worth the trip just to see it. When your done you can go next door to the chocolate store and get some ice cream.

I'm a real museum fan - I always go to the local museum of the anywhere I'm visiting and I'm really glad I went to this one. It was started as a labour of love by a group of individuals who are passionate about history. They have worked hard to amass a good collection of exhibits and -quite literally- weather... More

A must stop is the National Museum. If you do that first you can walk through the tunnel enroute the Fort afterwards. While the first floor covers off ancient history of the island, do not miss the upstairs of the museum out the back door as that is where there is a room that walks you through recent history, Grenadian...

From the early tribes, to the many artifacts displayed, historical accounts from the slave trade. Production machinery from the Rum and sugar industry , carnival costumes, huge whale bones and so much more to see. We were certainly fascinated... More

This museum is housed in a former army barrack/prison/hotel which is very well kept. The tour touched on aspects of Grenada's history inclusive of the indigenous peoples, slavery era, the Grenadian revolution, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

Don't expect the Smithsonian! Think Caribbean charm instead. This is a little museum with simple displays and lots of interesting bits and pieces from everywhere. Everything from sugar cane equipment to cannons to soil samples from around the island to ancient artifacts. Truly a lot of fun, especially for homeschoolers with bright children. My wife and I quite enjoyed it... More
