This is something I really wanted to visit when I arrived in Tortola off a cruise ship. Sadly however as the cruise dropped us off on a Sunday it was closed which is a real shame because it really looked interesting

The lady that greeted us when we entered was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She told us what to expect throughout the museum. This tiny gem of a place is a wealth of information on the island.

If you are interested in the history of Tortola this museum is worth a visit. We were visiting the nearby J.R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens and a fellow cruise ship passenger recommended that we walk over to see the museum and we're glad that we found it. Admission was $5.U.S. each. The woman who was working there that day was a lovely person & very knowledgeable. It was not crowded & the building is a cool spot to get out of the sun. There is much to learn there and it was very interesting. We walked back to our cruise ship afterwards.

The Lower Sugar Estate is an interesting stop. It's small, but if you take the time to read the postings on the exhibits, you can learn a lot. BE WARNED: apply bug repellent or get chewed up! As of this writing, there was a $5.00 (US accepted) per person fee. It doesn't open up until 10 am. The was a local artist exhibit showing when we visited, but the prices were steep. While on our walk out and back, we didn't see any other tourists headed there. It's a bit of a hike from the cruise dock, too, on busy roads with not the best sidewalks. Having seen it once, I've no reason to return, but it was interesting.

This is a great little museum to tell you a little of the history of this island and the people here. Everything from making rum to slavery.
