This little museum is in a fantastic old building that will fall to bits soon if it's not restored. Downstairs has the interesting little museum full of antiques & history of the area but upstairs is quite run down & not used at all. It's a shame they don't renovate the 2nd level & open a little cafe during the... More

There isn't very much to see inside but the folk who are seeing to the house are really friendly. There are a couple of art works to view and the scenery from the verandah is lovely overlooking the sea. It was a bit like the Al Capone house further on

One of the smallest museum I have ever been to but the house itself is the museum - built in the 1920's. Cost of entry is 2 CUC and the curator tries her best to explain away the museum. Photography is permitted. The second floor, although has nothing to exhibit does offer a balcony with amazing view of the ocean.... More

Interesting old building which you can admire from the outside . There really is not much inside . Really a misnomer to call it a museum .
