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.

  • Imuseo is hosted in the colonial Court House, built in 1747, and is the oldest building still in use in the city. The museum displays both Arawak artifacts that recovered colonial archaeological excavations on the Islands. It is interesting for those who love culture visit this little Museum. The entrance is free of charge but humble and well worth it!

  • 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
