The Cricket Legends of Barbados Museum Take a stroll down memory lane and marvel at the cricket wonders and treasures in the cricket museum at Herbert House, Fontabelle. This museum is the first heritage centre solely dedicated to cricket in Barbados. Packed with memorabilia dating back to the early 1900s, the Museum fills the senses with nostalgia for those glory days when the West Indies stood on top of the cricketing world.

abbey1

St Nicholas Abbey located in the parish of St.Peter, was built in 1658 and is one of only three genuine Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere. Barbados is home to two of these mansions, St.Nicholas Abbey and Drax Hall. Distinguishing features of this magnificent, well-preserved mansion are: curved Dutch gables, chimney stacks and coral stone finials, a Chinese Chippendale staircase and fine antiques and china. A rare 1930s film of sugar plantation life can also be viewed.

garisson1

Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison, an outstanding example of British colonial architecture consisting of a well-preserved old town built in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, which testifies to the spread of Great Britain’s Atlantic colonial empire. The property also includes a nearby military garrison which consists of numerous historic buildings. With its serpentine urban lay-out the property testifies to a different approach to colonial town-planning compared to the Spanish and Dutch colonial cities of the region which were built along a grid plan.

sugar1

The Frank Hutson Sugar Museum  is a permanent record of how sugar was produced in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The museum now stands a tribute to Sir Frank Hutson, who with assistance from the Barbados National Trust, collected the items in the museum. The history of sugar cultivation and production is displayed in this attractive museum which is located in the yard of the Portvale Sugar Factory, just off Highway 2A. The museum is open throughout the year but if you visit during the reaping season (February to May), you can compare the machinery of previous times with the modern machinery of the Portvale factory.
