  • Included in the city tour. Museum of a typical House of the island and typical dance of the inhabitants. Blah way. If included in a turn ok, but don't pay for it.

  • The good thing about visiting it is that you find in the history of the island, then it teaches you dancing Calypso. I would recommend it to anyone.

  • In one of the turns we made on the island, we decided to make a stop at the Museum to learn about the culture of this paradise! The very thoughtful guide tried to pass all the information in a way that we could understand even understanding fully the Spaniard. It is in the end still danced a local rate based on reggae.
