Heritage Collection Museum

Now a site of historical significance that is part of the Anguilla Heritage Trail, this private museum is run by a local writer who is also a huge wealth of knowledge regarding history and culture of the island. The property details the fascinating history of the island's people, from the British settlement and importation of slaves to averting plans to depopulate the island.

What to Expect

More of a people's history than the history of the island itself, this museum focuses on important figures from the past and the perseverance of the local people through adversity, endemics, and hurricanes. Exhibits include photographs, artifacts, and archaeological finds, but the owner, Mr. Petty is the most impressive feature.

You can't miss this building, as it has been recently painted the island's national colors in strips that beging at the roof and go all the way to the ground.
