  • From the moment you enter the city your at the museum... Add it to your stop while in St.George...👍👍👍
  • Very historical museum. It was built on the barracks of Fort George. Is located in St George's. Lots to do inside, plenty to see. There was a woman in there that was very knowledgeable about Grenada's history. She explained the history of every artifact. The location is beautiful and easy to get to. If you're in the area and have a little extra time so by, I promise you won't be disappointed.
  • Its been years i havent visited the museum, cant wait to get back!
