Fodor's Expert Review Arlington House Museum

Speightstown Family

Learn about the early days of Barbados, particularly Speightstown, at this interactive museum in the center of town. Virtual exhibits let you "talk" with local personalities, businesspeople, vendors, and historical figures. Other focal points are the room-size map of Barbados from 1747, the story of sugar and slavery, and a re-created wharf on the top floor—including virtual turtles swimming underneath and a pirate's running monologue. Adults and kids alike will learn a lot—and have fun doing it. Be sure to ask about their special group packages that come with a discount. All visits include a juice or rum punch.
