Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located at Nelson's Dockyard and included in the US$15 entrance fee to the Dockyard. It is a small but interesting museum displaying the history of the famous dockyard which was headquarters of the British Navy in the Caribbean in the 1700-1800s when Britain was trying to hold onto its American Colonies and when it was at war with France and Napolean. Well worth 20-30min when visiting the Dockyard.

At US$15 per person entry it is not cheap, but it is well worth a visit. It is at least well looked after.

Nice relatively small museum with quite a bit of information. It doesn't take long to get round it and note you have to have paid to get into English Harbour $15 - to get into the museum

A wonderful place to learn about the history of Nelson's Dockyard. Take your time to look at all the buildings and have a bite to eat or shop at the small supermarket.

Worth visiting to get an understanding of the place and history but it felt a little tired and neglected.
Some interesting stories scattered around but I’m sure there are many more which could be told.

My wife and I visited Nelson's Dockyard as part of our organised Island tour. Entrance to the site is via a ticket. The dockyard in English Harbour was opened to the public in the early sixties having been restored and is part of the National Park which includes Shirley Heights. Admiral Nelson lived here for three years in the late 18th Century. The Dockyard includes a large marina, two hotels, craft and food shops plus this interesting Admirals House Museum, originally the Naval Officers and Clerks Office dating back to 1855. The museum is set on two floors and is full of interesting historical information. Worth a visit.

This small but well done museum was the former officers quarters in Nelsons Dockyard. You will find numerous aspects relating to naval history and naval life. There are models of ships, weapons, personal items. art work and even the carved ship figureheads. There is a small shop within the building to round it off.

This was a small quick stop with just few Childrens activities and presented artifacts
Most impressive was the wall of trophies
