The Roseau or Dominica Museum is a little museum that is very easy to find. It is located right across the street from the cruise ship port on the second floor of the information centre. The museum is just a few bucks admission and is...More

A small museum detailing Dominica from precolombian days, through colonialism, slavery, freedom to today. An easy walk. Gives a good idea of "The Nature Island". Rebuilt.

The museum is small but very informative. The building and surrounding itself holds historical significance. Entry fee is just US$3. If you enjoy learning the history of the places you visit, you won't regret a visit to the museum.

Our 8 and 11 year old children enjoyed the museum. We love Dominica and appreciated learning more about it's history. While you could burn through it quickly, it took us about an hour to review each display. Cost was $3 US per person. Very close...More

Once onshore from your ship's docking position in the capital's port, this attraction is straight in front of you. A small entry fee to see a bit of this island's history.
