The museum is a small building tucked away near the town centre, but spreads over two floors. And there is a lot of information and interesting items to see!! We met a lovely member of staff called Carlon, who walked us around the museum and explained a lot of the history to us. Grenada has a fascinating and mighty history... More

All the history you could want to know about the Islands. There's a rough past there, definitely made me appreciate the country more.

Don't leave a visit for a rainy day. The museum is well worth a look, even though there seemed to be some cleaning and renovation work happening the day I was there.

The museum is located in a historic building on a historic street. The architecture is beautiful. The artifacts are pretty comprehensive and well laid out though not plentiful. It's definitely worth the walk through

It's a small museum, hot inside, and doesn't have a lot, but you can get a quick overview of the island's history there.

I visited the museum while on a cruise. We ported at St George's so I took a stroll into town and caught a few sites. I love to visit forts and museums while traveling, so this island was perfect for that. He museum was small, but had enough to keep me busy for about 40 minutes. The history was interesting... More

We visited the museum today. The building is packed full of artefacts and posters detailing the history of Grenada. Including details about the past of slavery, the coat of arms, the gaining of independence and farming. If you love museums, this is definitely somewhere to head as you look around St Georges. Entry is 5EC per adult. The building is... More

There are so many things to like about this little museum. Here are some of my favourites: - the colonial architecture. You don't get to see inside many of these buildings and this one is in pretty good, unrestored state. Wonderful internal etched glass panels, window shades and architraves. There's a large room upstairs used for community events; it was... More

The museum continues to improve. It is much tidier and better organised than when we first visited some years ago. I suspect it might benefit from a fresh pair of eyes to stand back an look critically at the displays. A more coherent sequence of the displays would establish a timeline of the island's fascinating and varied history. There are... More
