  • I went here in 2013 and there a great view of the volcano from here!
  • Shows a 20 minute video, by the time I had got there I had seen most of the clips on the ferry ride over. A few infographics scattered through the halls but nothing interactive or engaging. Has potential to been the jewel of the island but I think Montserrat as a whole is just starting to get its tourism legs back underneath it.
