In successive exhibits, this museum documents the history of Dominica, including the native Kalinago culture, the occupations of the island by the British and French, the slave trade, and the modern Caribbean. It is right in the center of town and the exhibits are fascinating.

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.

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.

This historic building and it's contents are in great need of some tender loving care by a curator of museums. If such a persons could only volunteer their time and knowledge, this could be a great place!!
