The venue itself dates back to 1704, when it served as an army barracks; later, it was a prison for British female inmates.

  • A small museum spread over 2 floors. The exhibits are minimal. Worth a visit if you are interested in the history of Grenada, especially about the revolution. Some of the exhibits on ground floor are very old like the shark jaw bone, the utensils, and the instruments of stone and ceramic age Simon , the curator also provided some good information about the exhibits. He himself has contributed a few of them
  • Loved it. Such a historical building in need of TLC. Please visit and donate to its upkeep
  • Beautiful waterfall. Short walk from road. Few steps to view from below but not necessary. You may see a local diver jumping from a ledge to the left of waterfall.
  • Great location, in the heart of Town. This place offers all of Grenada's history in one convenient location. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the history. Going to the museum should be on your list when visiting Grenada.
  • One of the best in the west Indies
