Last month, Melanie Reffes (USA Today Travel) wrote about the best Caribbean museums. She invites us to visit these: Anguilla’s Heritage Museum Collection; Jamaica’s Bob Marley Museum; the Aimé Césaire Museum in Fort-de-France, Martinique; the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art; National Museum & Art Gallery of Trinidad & Tobago; the George Washington House in Bush Hill, Barbados; Cuba’s Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes [National Museum of Fine Arts] in Havana; and the Cayman Islands’ Cayman Brac Museum. Reffes writes:
Move over stodgy headphone tours and all that quiet perusing through boring exhibits and opt instead for a stroll through a funky museum in the Caribbean. An interactive window into the history and cultures of the islands and a labor of love for those who curate them, museums in the tropics not only are a fun break from the beach but also dish up history lessons worth learning. From Bob Marley’s gold records in Jamaica and George Washington’s four poster bed in Barbados to colorful art in Cuba and British naval cannons in Anguilla, check out our list of the coolest exhibits in the coolest Caribbean museums.
