We visited the Nassau Library & Museum as part of a self-guided walking tour we took after our morning cruise ship snorkel excursion. It's an interesting building near several other justice buildings and it's interesting to know that it used to be a prison. If you visit the library be sure to climb the stairs for a great view of downtown Nassau. It's about a 10 minute walk from the cruise port.

This unusual octagonal structure was once the Nassau jail. It was built in 1797

Visitors are welcome to take a look at the small cells which are used to house books.

Check out the relics left by the Arawak Indians, the now extinct indigenous people of the Bahamas. They also have a collection of centuries old prints and colonial documents. I couldn't find any treasure maps.

Admission is free.

We were just kind of checking out Parliment and noticed this cute little building behind it. As we got closer we noticed it was a library. You really should check it out if you are in the are. Follow the stairs up to the veranda and enjoy a nice view that not many others know about.
