  • As a museum enthusiast I quite enjoyed both of my visits to this museum, as a child and again as an adult. Not much has changed as expected with history neither has it changed architecturally which just adds to its great character. It is not a massive museum so it can be enjoyed in a day with time to spare. However it is very informative in terms of the islands history. The displays are also interesting and captivating. A great place for the entire family and both locals and vistors alike.

  • We visited the museum in August 2018. It was a nice museum that covered a lot about the island's history. It's located in an old military prison, which was a cool location. I recommend checking it out.

  • Interesting look at Barbadian history but needs updating and modernising. On a hot day it's warm inside. Reception is friendly and there's a nice museum store.

  • Beautiful building and amazing history. Guides are very knowledgeable.

  • This is a very good Museum that does a good job of making the history of Barbados accessable to both adults and children.
