Having visited Speightstown many times and never been to the museum, we decided this year it would be top of our 'to do' list.
What an amazing and informative experience.
The house, the guide, the 21st Century inter-active displays....

Very interesting place to visit and learn about the history and culture. This is a guided tour with very informative guides. As you tour the Museum you are entering different rooms of the home with different exhibits in each. Very worth a look.

The ground floor exhibits are free, you have to pay to go upstairs. We paid and enjoyed it all.
The ground floor is video diaries of different tradespeople. On the first floor is a room with video about the island and its history and is decorated like a cane field. An adjacent room has more resources about the people of...
