Prime Minister Stuart expressed his excitement at seeing the museum’s displays about Caribbean history, and especially those pertaining to his country, Barbados. “This museum is very important for the descendants of West Indians and Barbadian residents living in this country, since it allows them to learn about where they came from,” said Stuart.

The museum is located on Calle 24 Este and Avenida Justo Arosemena in Calidonia. Opening hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 8:30 a.m. – 3:15 p.m. Admission is $1 for adults. For more information contact Tel. 501-4131 or write info@samaap.org
