Take in the history of the island at Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, a small but well-stocked museum providing information on the island's geological history, as well as its cultural and political past. The museum's relatively small size makes it a good place to bring children, who also enter free. You can visit the museum as part of a day excursion in the town, while also having time to see other sights. Be sure to check out the gift shop, which sells local artisan products, including jewelry and pottery.

  • Nice little museum. Some of the exhibits could use some updating. Also this is a cool building to visit as it used to be the court house. There are a couple of locomotives from the sugar cane days in front of the building and around the right side of it as well. Staff was friendly.
  • Small museum with a few interesting things but very basic. Does have an access ramp but it's very steep so if in a wheelchair then you're going to need a strong helper to push you up!! The staff are really friendly.
  • Small, one room museum, but with informative exhibits and helpful staff. Just in the center of town, a walkable distance from the market and cruise terminal.
  • Small and interesting place with a lot of history, showing the history of Antigua and Barbuda, located in what it used to be a court house the outside of the building with its architecture is nice to admire and the displays at the museum are simple but very educational and interesting, don't miss it
  • You'll enjoy seeing the trains and leaning the history of Antigua and Barbuda
