Grenada National Museum

It seems almost poetic that one of the oldest buildings in Grenada houses the Grenada National Museum. Built by the French in the 1700’s, it has also been used as a military barracks, a jail and the storeroom for the infamous Home Hotel.

The influence of the French architecture can still be seen in the cast-iron balconies and fish-scale roof and the museum boasts a collection of a wide variety of historical objects: pre-Columbian pottery, the Bianca C exhibit, a French Empress’ bathtub and artifacts for manufacturing rum and sugar, just to name a few.

The museum is located next to the Court’s building on Young Street, close to the Sendall Tunnel and the Carenage.
