  • Spent a week in Guyana and decided to visit the Guyana National Museum in Georgetown. First of all it's difficult to find, tucked away near the market, with no obvious signs to it. When we did find it...  more »
  • This museum gives a good smattering of Guyanese culture and nature - it could not compete with Europe's best museums, but that's not the point: well worth a visit. 
  • This museum has a good collection very well distributed and didactic form the historic account of the country since its discovery by Europeans.

  • It's in here I learn about the books the present wrote. It's amazing what's inside. Check it out!!!
  • good museum but needs to be much larger i believe
  • Staff is terrible
  • Great place to see experience some history and native animals that comes from Guyana...
  • The experience was a pleasant one except I feel like the staff there are being paid to sit around and do nothing.
