New Providence and Paradise Islands Sights

Nassau Public Library and Museum

Updated 07/12/2013

Fodor's Review

The octagonal building near Parliament Square was the Nassau Gaol (the old British spelling for jail), circa 1797. You're welcome to pop in and browse. The small prison cells are now lined with books. The museum has an interesting collection of historic prints and old colonial documents. Computers with Internet access are available for rent—$1.00 for 15 minutes, $4 for an hour.
