Information-dense exhibits populate this museum in an old brick structure built on the foundations of historic Fort George. Everything from the indigenous Amer-Indians through colonialism/slavery to the more modern industrialization period. Interesting old rum-making and fishing/whaling tools. Don't miss the upstairs, which has some eye-opening pegboard displays of the controversial US-led "Intervasion" of 1983 that knocked off Grenada's flirtation with... More

We went for a walk and found this museum by luck not judgement. This was a charge but not sure what it was but it was not much. There appears to be just the big space on the ground floor which we found interesting enough but as we went to leave the gentleman on the desk asked us if we... More

Lots of things to see from early Amerindian artefacts to empress Josephine's bathtub! Learn about whaling, rum making and more. Books by local authors and local artwork on sale.

Very nice staff wanting to answer any question that you might have. The well organized museum gave a nice overview of the history of the Island and added a lot of insight and information that i did not know about the Island. I would allocate an hour to go through it.

On the first floor is a good overall history of the island. The second floor has displays of the 1979 revolution. It was not as detailed. iIf you didn't know some of the history, it was confusing.

Very nice small museum showing the history of the island. Lots of information from pre-Columbian times through about 1985. Only problem was the lack of information on the last 30 years. We learned a lot seeing the various displays. Clearly this is a labor of love for those running it. We thought it very funny that the present from the... More

The museum has lots of artifacts. You'll need a couple of hours to read some of the info. It's worth the trip just to see it. When your done you can go next door to the chocolate store and get some ice cream.

I'm a real museum fan - I always go to the local museum of the anywhere I'm visiting and I'm really glad I went to this one. It was started as a labour of love by a group of individuals who are passionate about history. They have worked hard to amass a good collection of exhibits and -quite literally- weather... More

A must stop is the National Museum. If you do that first you can walk through the tunnel enroute the Fort afterwards. While the first floor covers off ancient history of the island, do not miss the upstairs of the museum out the back door as that is where there is a room that walks you through recent history, Grenadian...
