We skipped the museum and did the garden. It was far larger than expected and particularly well tended. We were lucky enough to run into Pie who was refurbishing the medicinals. We have an interest so he took time to describe everything. He was great, as were the folks in the office and the gift shop. It is very inexpensive... More

Although we live on montserrat full time now, we always pop into the National trust so that any visiting friends and family can check out their seasonal displays of what's going on at the national trust, or stroll through the gardens. Then once that is done, the gift shop has a huge array of great souvenirs to look at, and... More

The trust gardens are beautiful. The gift shop is a great stop to pick up unique gifts and souvenirs. Definitely a recommended stop on the island.

We went there hoping to get information, in particular on the trails which were much advertised in the tourist literature. The trail map was $2.50, and gave minimal information on both the routes of the trails themselves and what we should expect to see on them. The ladies serving were equally uninformed and uninformative. None of them had been on... More

Lovely unusual flowers and bushes to see. If you live there you can purchase plants. Not suitable for someone with mobility problems.

Although this is not always open on the weekends, I managed to go when it was open and thoroughly enjoyed the place, where I got to see around the gardens, and even sign up to be part of their trust, which was worth the small amount it costs to help preserve the wildlife and vegetation of Montserrat. All of this,... More

Botanical gardens are located here as well as a shop. Island is in a drought right now so many of the plants are pulled up and stored in green houses to keep them alive, but this was done to preserve the plants native to the island. It was worth the trip anyways. The orchid house had some beautiful specimens. You... More

Designed by the masters from Kew in the UK and expertly maintained by local staff. Lovely gift shop. Plenty of local information and friendly staff.

MNT has a great gift shop, very well stocked and well-managed. Gardens could use a hand out for a self-guided tour, but it is great to see them being well-maintained by a large group of volunteers. Well done Montserrat National Trust. The Antigua Botanical Garden could learn much from you!!!
