Fodor's Review

Located in a multi-building complex that once housed the Ecury Family Estate, this modern, air-conditioned museum showcases the island's beginnings right back to the

indigenous Arawak people, including a vast collection of farm and domestic utensils dating back hundreds of years. Among the highlights are the re-created Arawak Village, multimedia and interactive presentations, and rotating exhibits of art, history, and cultural shows.
