The Barbados Museum is divided into a number of galleries, a research library, and is housed in a former military prison. It is considered by some to be a "must see". What visitors may find most fascinating are the antique maps in the Aall Gallery and the artefacts depicting the social history of Barbados from the pre-Columbian period.
The Children's gallery is also very popular and informative.
The museum is located across from the Garrison Savannah track.
It is a short taxi ride from the cruise ship dock, and well located for those who are already on the South coast of the island. (Please note there is an admission charge; most of this information was transcribed from the Barbados in a Nutshell booklet available to visitors)
