Small history museum with galleries on Grenada's Kalinago inhabitants; European influence from the 15th century; and modern history such as, the sinking of Italian cruise ship 'The Bianca C' in 1961, Grenada independence in 1974 and the 1979 Revolution. Displays include collections of Amerindian pottery, canons, from the British/French battles for the island, coppers used during the slave era to process sugarcane, and a mix of objects reflecting the colonial period of the 17th and 18th century.

This museum has exhibits from both the Amerindian and colonial periods. What I liked best was the press exhibit upstairs, which has copies of local newspapers from the time of the coup and the US invasion in 1983. It was good to get some local...More

Very small. There is a small entrance fee. You get the history of Grenada. Can be done in less than an hour.

Three rooms plus a project room upstairs (donations requested in addition to downstairs entrance fee). Interesting enough but not a lot of learning happened. Nice historical setting.

Nice to read/see/learn about Grenada and its history. Cheap price to enter and goes towards helping to keep the museum going.. good to pop in if you have some spare time in St George but your trip wont be spoilt without visiting.
