“Great views, history and Audio Visual”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Educational and worthwhile audio visual show. Only basic,...but worth a few minutes of your time....and cost are included with Nelsons Dockyard tickets. (1hour max)

Afterwards, take a walk to the back see the fort ruins, extensive views to Mamora bay ..and grab some photo's of the scenery.

Typically combine this with Nelsons Dockyard and Shirley Heights (daytime!). Your Taxi driver will normally wait.

“Scenic and Educational”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Besides being one the most scenic view in Antigua, the program there is very educational. One of the best descriptions of how the islands were settled. This should be a must visit when in Antigua.

“Well done history of the Islands”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The interpretation center presentation is done fairly well. You sit on seats that revolve around as you watch screens around the room tell different parts of the Antigua Island history. Very good overview of what led to the current state of the island. Otherwise there a few ruins from old historical buildings on the sight, as well as some stunning views. Was part of our Nelson's Dockyard tour, and glad it was included.

The interpretative presentation was well done and informative. The area offered views of the entire surrounding area from this high vantage point.
