(320+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
See the historic George Washington House, where America's first president (before he was a politician) resided for two months in 1751 with his ailing brother. Manicured gardens surround the two-story traditional house, which features a pastel yellow façade accented with green shutters. Learn about why George Washington came to the country through a series of informative tour activities. Walk around the originally preserved house as musicians dressed in period costume serenade you. You can also experience Dinner with George, a five-course candlelight dinner accompanied by music and a living history version of the man himself. Add George Washington House and other attractions to your Garrison trip itinerary using our Garrison itinerary planner.

  • Visited this place for the Café outside the museum, offers good quality food and the atmosphere is brilliant. It has a nice terrace next to the Museum garden.
  • Crikey it was so hot I sweated a lot visiting this place. Glad I took water with me else I'd have melted. Fascinating history
  • Lovely location to checkout if you have a few hours to spare. You can also get breakfast at the cafe on site which is fantastic.
  • Good tour experience. Friendly & helpful staff.
  • Restored house with informative museum about Washington's stay in Barbados but also about the history of the island.
