Located on Waterfront Drive, the Government House Museum’s mission “is to showcase the history and culture of the Virgin Islands as portrayed in this historic Residence of British Representatives of the Crown from the 17th Century, through research, exhibits, preservation, education and entertainment initiatives.” This stunning, historic building is a great place to take your visiting friends who want a little background about the island’s history.

The Lower Estate Sugar Works Museum houses a collection of artifacts from the building’s original use as a place where sugar and cotton were processed as well as other historical items. The museum also hosts regular exhibitions by local visual artists.

The Virgin Islands Maritime Museum, located at the Marine Centre at H. Lavity Stoutt Community College, showcases and celebrates the islands’ maritime heritage.
