Dow's Hill Interpretation Centre is a museum on Antigua. The hill was part of the estate of Archibald Dow, a civilian Royal Navy official, before it was acquired for the construction of fortifications. Dow's House became a residence for senior garrison officers and then the Governor of the Leeward Islands before it was destroyed by an 1834 earthquake. The museum was established in 1989 with funding from the Canadian International Development Agency and provides a presentation of Antiguan history and tours of nearby ruins.

  • Well organised and accepts same tickets with Nelson Dockyard. Today 2021-11-19 it was a quiet place. Nice scenery. We were here as part of Johnny's Antigua Tours & Snorkeling tour.

  • Definitly a must to visit if you are in the area. One of the best view of the coast. Got a lot of instagram views from the reel I did over there.
  • The view along with the rich history about the ruins is worth it. A fantastic spot to visit. Also apart of Nelson's Dockyard National Park.
