I visited the museum after visiting the Market on Saturday morning. It is small but it is nice to find out a bit about the history of Grenada. It is only USD 2.50, which isn't much at all.

Yes the museum is small but at least by attending these places it helps to understand the islands an puts much needed money back into the island. Being on a cruise this time round of visiting the ships do not seem to bring much revenue into the islands. The people are friendly and very helpful,will,always give extra info if asked. Give it a try you may very well learn something and feel good about the whole experience.

This museum is small, and has quite a mix of exhibits.
It isn't fancy, and won't take long to go through, but it does present some interesting history of Grenada.
I enjoyed the animal displays upstairs (the butterflies, the birds) - it enabled me to identify a hawk I saw circling the villas where we were staying.
I also learned about the nearby active volcano (you will have to visit the museum to learn more!)
I would recommend visiting, to see a few interesting things, and provide some support for this museum.

Doing a walking tour of St George's and called in to the museum. As we found elsewhere, some really friendly and helpful people in the museum eager to assist. Place looked a bit sad and in need of support but a few interesting things. Walking tour ok and the Fort worth it if only for the views.

Yes it's very small and most visitors would probably not notice it but at least you can gain some knowledge about the island's history. Only 5 ECD to get in so it won't break the bank and you can probably do the whole place in 10 minutes if you like. I was the only visitor there when I went so took my time and enjoyed what little I saw. They are currently doing the place up a bit.
