Here you will learn about the natives of this land and the many European conquests. Upstairs is the chronical of the US invasion and/or peace keeping ... a variety of views. Everyone should avail themselves of this history with a visit to the museum.

This is a gem of a little historical museum located right off the Caranage in St. Georges. Visitors to St. Georges should definitely make this a stop. The museum director, Simeon, is a treasure trove of info and fun to talk with.

This museum has exhibits from both the Amerindian and colonial periods. What I liked best was the press exhibit upstairs, which has copies of local newspapers from the time of the coup and the US invasion in 1983. It was good to get some local...More
