This small museum surprisingly has quite a few artifacts. Upstairs is the original art work of a local artist who has paintings in Buckingham Palace. The artist's daughter works in the museum and will give you a little history.

This museum is small and had some interesting AmerIndian pottery and other artifacts which have been found during digs on Carriacou. It costs 5 EC per adult. The museum also has some good souvenirs to purchase.
