Learn more about the tangled history of Grenada at Grenada National Museum. The museum illustrates a comprehensive and wide-ranging history of the nation, including sections on slavery, archaeology, whaling and fishing, the military coup of the 1980s, plantations, and the island's first inhabitants. The venue itself dates back to 1704, when it served as an army barracks; later, it was a prison for British female inmates. Check the schedule ahead of arrival, as the museum frequently hosts folk and dance performances. Grenada National Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, St. George's Edition.

    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.
