  • No visit to a new country would be complete without visiting their historical sites and museums. I enjoyed learning about the history of Antigua and Barbuda. The information is well presented and compelling. I travelled here solo, but I would recommend this for a family outing as well.
  • This museum is small but well worth a visit if you're in Barbados. It provides an overall history of the Island from its creation up through its transition away from slavery. For train Buffs they have the last remaining armored World War 1 Train around the side of the building.
