We found this museum to be very interesting. If you are in Grenada you should definitely learn more about their country.

“small but worthwhile”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

The museum is small, quite old-fashioned as museums go, but a good sketch of Grenadian history, including early times, and a whole perspective that one normally doesn't get as a touris.

“Interesting place to learn more on Grenadian history”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

The museum is in need of some renovation, the collections seem to be put up in 80´s and left as they were. But the staff is very friendly, we almost missed the second floor as there was not adequent signs to point there, but the staff member came to show us the collection there. Also, the place is filled with nice artifacts and lots of information on Grenadian history. Stop by to visit, if you´re in St George!

“Poor quality - little to see”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

I was very disappointed in this museum. It seemed to have very few exhibits with little information. Unfortunately, I was comparing it to the amazing museum I saw last year in Curacao which provided detailed information about the history of the slave trade in the Caribbean. The Grenada National Museum seemed very shallow in comparison and could be greatly improved.
