#3 of 11 in Museums in Antigua and Barbuda
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.
