“Very nice example of colonial era.”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

The building itself is quite interesting as are the contents which include model ships and original paintings by the Lowe family. Worth a visit if you can find it open while you are there!

“Personal service in a beautiful little museum”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Nothing to dislike.
We loved the pretty little garden, the traditional kitchen, the beautiful model ships, the charming period setting, and the kindly and well-informed guide. This is an absolute must for visitors to Green Turtle.

PS Alton Lowe (whom we met once many years ago) happened to ring and we had a chat with this charming man. Unforgettable.

“Do not miss this museum !!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

A must see while visiting Green Turtle Cay. Chris Farrington, who is also a local real estate agent, serves as a museum guide--there is not a set speech, he points things of interest out to you, and answers your questions; he will give you all the time and attention you want, without being intrusive. The history contained within the walls of the house is amazing--it fills in all the gaps of an American US Revolutionary War history, that was spoon fed to us as kids.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I stopped in to this quaint little museum while visiting Green Turtle Cay. A very nice gentleman gave me a brief, but very interesting tour while explaining a little bit of the history of the island. He was very informative and not at all pushy. Willing to make my tour as long or as short as I liked. The admission fee was $5.00, and well worth it, as it enhanced my visit to the island.

“Fascinating Glimpse Into Bahamian History”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We never miss a trip to the Albert Lowe Museum whenever we're in Green Turtle Cay. The building itself is amazing - a traditional Loyalist home from the early 1800s, and one of only a few to survive a devastating hurricane in 1932. The exhibits are varied and fascinating -- photographs, paintings, model ships, sculptures, Lucayan Indian artifacts, historic documents, a traditional island kitchen building, and many, many antiques. Don't miss it - or the Memorial Sculpture Garden a few blocks away.
