Anguilla National Trust

The Anguilla National Trust was founded in 1989, with the mission of preserving local heritage through educational tours and working on projects like creating national parks.

They are located in a facility called the Museum Building, and they have a collection of Amerindian artifacts and paintings, but the Anguilla Trust does not operate as a museum. Instead they oversee the preservation of local heritage and historical sites.

Cost and Offerings

While they are not a traditional museum, they have a similar mission: to emphasize the importance of the area's history. Tours are offered in order to educate the public concerning this mission. The natural beauty of the area is highlighted in tours such as Turtle Patrol, which allows you to take part in sea turtle night patrols. In order to immerse visitors in the history of the area, several of their tours take you through important architectural spots or involve a hike through nature to view authentic petroglyphs.

If you are inspired by their cause, or you have been looking for a souvenir, t-shirts are available for sale at their office, or online. Proceeds are used to help fund the organization.

Tour costs are typically about $10-$50 per person, depending on the size of your group and the extent of the tour. Discounted prices are available for children.

What to Expect

Anguilla National Trust is located within a historical building, consistent with their commitment to preserving local history.

Hours

Tours are not held at regularly scheduled times. Instead, visitors are encouraged to call ahead, to make reservations at a mutually agreeable time. Their office is generally open Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
