Nice to read/see/learn about Grenada and its history. Cheap price to enter and goes towards helping to keep the museum going.. good to pop in if you have some spare time in St George but your trip wont be spoilt without visiting.

Information-dense exhibits populate this museum in an old brick structure built on the foundations of historic Fort George. Everything from the indigenous Amer-Indians through colonialism/slavery to the more modern industrialization period. Interesting old rum-making and fishing/whaling tools. Don't miss the upstairs, which has some eye-opening...More

On the first floor is a good overall history of the island. The second floor has displays of the 1979 revolution. It was not as detailed. iIf you didn't know some of the history, it was confusing.
