“Excellent History!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Its rare that you come across a Museum which has such complete details about a country's past. It wasn't too expensive to get inside and the accuracy of the history and the artifacts on display was astonishing! Well done Dominica, only wish the government would invest a little more into getting the physical building renovated...

“Nice quick history, definately see”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

With actual artifacts and many clearly explained pictures and displays. From the Carib (the original natives) to present. Go in the morning as they close at 2pm. Only when open, you will see the stairs to the left of Tourist Information (Market Square) to go up to museum.

“Roseau Museum”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

This is a gem of a museum . It is very underplayed. This small compact museum has an array of artifacts which give a very clear and comprehensive historical anecdote of the island , culture and ethnology.
Also look out for the large painting of Queen Victoria on the entrance staircase.

“A good place to start on your visit to Dominica”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

This nice little museum has very good displays and is concise in describing the island's history. Does not have air conditioning, so can be stuffy by mid afternoon - go in the morning.

“A must when in Dominica”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

The island is small and there is not a lot to do. However it is very pretty and is well worth a visit. The scenery is magnificent and the people are pleasant. In particular its museum, right on the waterfront, is an interesting place to go. It is well put together and is really interesting and informative.
