The presentation show, moving around the room in lights, sound, and displays gives an interesting multimedia presentation of the island's history. Outside, the views are great as well. The grounds also contain historic ruins ans a disolay of 18th century artifacts collected from the island.

Start your island tour here as it gives you a good overview of what to expect to see and the history behind it. Good views are also avaiable from the surrounding park

This is a lovely spot with superb views however the Visitor Centre was very disorganised. We were on an excursion from our cruise ship and there were other ships in port that day leading crowds coming and going from the viewing room. The demonstration is really child orientated and took rather a long time.

Worth the stop! The views are outstanding. The historical presentation was low-tech, but well-done. We sat on stools and turned as the spotlight showed a different part of Antigua's history accompanied by a narrative.

Our visit started with a multi-media presentation. It was charming and provided an overview of the history of the island. Next a tour guide took us out back and spoke to us for a bit (she was a little too brief, fast-talking). The views were nice. They also have a small gift shop, a cafeteria-looking room, and a clean restroom.

We took a tour on a bus and this was included in our tour. It was very informational and explained many details of the history of the island.

We visited this site as part of our Gordon Tours and Travel booking, a company we highly recommend, The presentation was done in a unique way in that you sit upon a stool and spin around as the history unfold in the dioramas located around the room. After the brief presentation a guide was available to answer any questions you... More
