  • Some really great pieces there. Riverside Tours and Travel highly recommended
  • Not a world class museum by any means, but a small yet impactful National Museum is fitting for Grenada. Do not expect a polished overarching narrative running throughout; do expect artifacts and information on the Amerindian peoples, slavery, colonialism, whaling, and a few notable moments in Grenadian history, with additional artifacts from daily life a hundred or so years ago.
