  • If you are at interested in things anthropological, you will surely enjoy this very professionally laid-out museum. Interesting and informative indigenous culture display with clearexplanations. 
  • Here you can learn how aboriginals lived and lived before the English came to the country! People's fishing gear-Canoes-household items and much more, is on display in this Anthropological museum. This is also the first story about the country of Guyana, which was inhabited by various indian tribes. INTERESTING!
