Excellent Museum, worth some of your time during your visit to Nelson’s Dockyard. Gives great insight into the buildings and how it was nearly 300 years ago.

No trip to Antigua complete without visiting this museum. However, I think the Antiguans should embrace attracting more tourists in the summer months so that the area does not come across so much as a ghost town.
