This Museum is at the top of a hill south of Scarborough. It is one of the old King George fort buildings that has been renovated. It is in a wonderful position with amazing views. There are artefacts and objects both inside and out of the museum. It is well worth a visit even more so if you want to... More

This Museum is located in an ideal setting, namely the Officers' Quarters of the historic Fort King George. The building is built of stone, stoutly reinforced and is redolent of the history of colonial expansion by Britain in the late Eighteenth Century. The colloection inside features not only Amerindian but also pre-Columbian Indian artefacts but it suffers by comparison with... More

Arrived after lunch and had a look around. Nice views but very hot. Tried to buy from lady with stall but she was too busy chatting and ignored us so we gave up. Went into museum but told it was shutting at 2pm, not 5pm as advertised, so we only had time for a 10 minute dash around the exhibits.... More

Up above the city, and looking out across the sea in the morning light, you can't help but appreciate the beauty of nature. Not to mention the clean soothing breezes that waft in and around the Fort and the warm 'hand' of the sun upon your face. Poetic and serene! Ideal for anyone who may want a moment to reflect...

Awesome view from here. Great place to hang out. We always take the drive up here when we visit the sister isle. Very Romantic at sunset into night.
