There’s a lot of history to get your head around in Grenada, and the National Museum is the best place to start.
The historic building itself is almost as interesting as the museum’s collection. Dating back to 1704, the building has served time as a prison, army barracks and hotel.
Inside, you’ll get the lowdown on Grenada’s centuries of history, from Amerindian pottery shards to sailors’ rum stills, and the flotsam and jetsam of the island’s many visitors over the years. There’s also a display on the 1983 US invasion.
Grenada National Museum is in St. George’s, on the western bank of the Carenage.
