Interesting small museum

There are some interesting artifacts in this small museum. It will not take long to go through. The building that houses it is interesting, too.

Great little museum, giving you an insight into English Harbour and Antigua as a whole as it related to the British navy.

English Harbour/Nelson's Dockyard is probably the principal tourist attraction on Antigua. The Museum gives an excellent overview of British naval history in the West Indies during Nelson's time. It also provides more general information about the navy during the 18th and 19th centuries. Suitable for adults as well as children.

Whilst visiting the dockyard we popped into have a look at this museum. Unfortunately we had to rush it. Lots of history in a small building and presented well.
