The best way to learn about Barbados is through a visit to the Barbados Museum & Historical Society located in the island’s sole UNESCO World Heritage Property.
With a collection of over 500,000 artefacts dating from prehistoric times, every gallery at the Barbados Museum & Historical Society narrates the stories and historical events of Barbados.
Tour Guides bring the history and stories of the island alive through Barbados Museum Gallery tours, guided walking tours of UNESCO World Heritage Site of Historic Bridgetown and the Garrison and very interesting and enjoyable Bus Tours around Barbados.
Walking, Bus and Guided Gallery tours must be booked in advance.

From aerodynamics to building and construction stations and the human body exhibit, the gallery is a stimulating environment that is suitable for all ages and learning abilities.
