We enjoyed our visit to the Museum which we thought was very well done. A few seats around the place would have been appreciated though.

With history never my strong point at school I love to be reminded of facts about our past and this place does well to explain Nelsons life at sea and serving his country and the English Harbour history. Lovely open museum with free entry.

Amazing artifacts and history in this museum and it is worth the time to go. Unfortunately, I had little time but really liked the exhibits as did my wife, a non-historian.

Very well-preserved and a lot of thought and detail has gone into the exhibits. A fascinating insight in to Nelson's time in the Caribbean.

When you visit the Dockyard yo simply have to find the time to visit the Admiral's house museum, it is jam packed with historical documents and item's. A must visit.

Cast your mind and imagination back to 1750, imagine the harbour full off the Windward Isles Squadron. Our poor sailors and soldiers would have suffered in the heat and it's no wonder so many died. Interesting, small museum . Not a great many artefacts on...More

Nice place to learn a little of the history of Antigua and the British impact it had. Good exhibits.
