  • Good self-guided tour, cheesy but informative mini-documentary film, lovely grounds, and well-signed information. When finished, you can exit via a long dark tunnel, recently re-opened, part of a series of tunnels in the historic Garrison area. It was $20 BD when I visited (April 2022).
  • A worthwhile stop on your travels around Barbados- visit on a Tuesday or Thursday to take in the full 3 hr tour of the Garrison. Very interesting and VERY well put together- interactive displays throughout. Highly recommended.
