We stopped by due to being big history buffs. It was OK but not much there. We walked around a few minutes then left. Cost us $90 Taxi ride from our resort. Not worth it. Very old & not well kept museum.

Great place for a visit, beautiful place, plenty of places to stop for lunch, pop into the museum for a trip through time and if your feeling fit take a hike up to Shirley heights for the breathtaking views

The boys liked this-I thought it was ok. There is some interesting history and the building are nice. Location is by the waterfront and we viewed it from a boat a few days before which I thought gave a more interesting view of the area....More

We visited during Sailing week, fabulous yachts, lovely atmosphere, buzzy and very safe. We stayed in Falmouth so went to the dockyard most days, although the Adventure Antigua boat trip we did also came into to the dockyard - must say this really was the...More

Really enjoyed our trip to Nelsons Dockyard. We took the tour which was very quick but gave us some useful facts. Children loved wandering around and with a lovely breeze we had time to sit and relax. We had the most delicious lunch at Admiral...More

Great place to visit and learn about. Wood working store had some great stuff. Very reasonable. Lot's of cannons! Perfect place for some Antiquian History.

Architecturally brilliant. Lots of historic things to see (museums and old English naval buildings).

We went on a Monday with Almond Peters, who runs and owns Pelican Safari Tours (a must-do and we highly recommend his tour). We really appreciated seeing this site, as they have historical markers all around and a great museum. They have little shops and...More

I didn't see any signs about closures. I would think it is open year round due to the nice weather and being a World Heritage site

No moorings in Nelsons, its quite tight quarters, round the other side in Falmouth there are moorings and space for anchoring, it is a 5 min walk between the 2.

I pretty sure it was open 8 til 5. Not sure about transport there as we just rented a car. Easy to find and good parking in front of facilities. No problem driving on in a right hand drive, just beware of the pot holes all... More
