Our Exhibitions

Throughout our first floor you can explore the unique characteristics of currencies across the globe, learn about the history of Bridgetown and its commerce and celebrate the journey of the Central Bank of Barbados from inception to present day.

On the second floor, our classroom exhibition will allow you to step inside a classroom from the 50s and get a glimpse of the games of yesteryear. Neighbouring this exhibition is one that dispels the myth of the Freemasonry and unveils the secret society that is ingrained in Barbadian history.
