Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is a small museum with information on the Kalinago people.
A collection of potytery, cannons, copper, battles between the Britsh and French and many items closer to today in age. Items from the 15th to 20th centry.

This museum is closed as it undergoes renovations. The tour company I used knows the director and I was able to see just one of the rooms. The exhibit on the Amerindian natives was very interesting. I definitely would like to return after the renovations have neen completed.

Once this museum is open this is going to be an incredible stop for Grenada history. I had an appointment with the curator for a project/donation and can not wait for the grand opening.

A slightly weird mix of history and ecology, wildlife and interesting artefacts. It was definitely worth a look, ideal for those staying a while, but not for a short duration trip

Fascinating little museum showing the ancient history of the Island although could have done with more information on the more recent history, especially as we had just been up to Fort George.

5 USDs in enter if not part of bigger tour but in truth there’s not much to see. Some interesting artefacts about Grenada’s history, particularly around its part in the slave trade, whaling and the sugar industry. Didn't take long to get round.

Definitely worth seeing. So much history here. It is very interesting. Small gift shop inside. I believe it was only 5 EC for entrance.

I visited when on a cruise two weeks ago and found it very interesting about the island's history. The displays are in English and is well worth a visit.

The entrance is along at the corner and not the main door. The very friendly staff opened up to let me in! I went to see the marble bath allegedly belonging to Empress Josephine (of Napoleon fame) who came from nearby island. It is there, with many items of local interest, but can be visited in less than an hour. Great place for a hot or rainy day, but in need of some care and attention.

A great cheap museum to learn about the history of Grenada. Has the whole history of Grenada up til modern day. Wouldn't want to spend more than 2hours here though.
