The Barbados Museum was originally a prison, and now serves as a museum to show us the country’s diverse culture and long history
The Barbados Museum, located to the north of the Garrison Racecourse in the southern suburbs of Bridgetown, is a historic building in itself. It was built in 1933 and used to be a prison.
Good environment, good service, very interesting experience
Many cultural relics derived from local life are displayed
The National Museum of Barbados is a comprehensive museum integrating natural history and society. The museum occupies a small area and was converted from a local military prison. The exhibition hall is divided into several parts: nature, history, social folklore, oil painting works donated by collectors, and children's exhibition hall. The exhibition hall covers a total area of three to four hundred square meters and has a small souvenir shop. To understand the history and customs of the small island country, you can take a look, but don't hold up too much hope. It is not the same as the exhibition methods of domestic museums. The building itself is a historical building and is part of the world cultural heritage. The service attitude of the museum staff is quite good. Photography is not allowed in the exhibition hall, and the ticket is $10.
