The Carriacou Museum

Located in the second oldest cotton ginnery in the world, The Carriacou Museum is located on Paterson Street on the small island of Carriacou. This museum is privately financed, surviving mainly on public donations, and the Carriacou Historical Society ensures that each exhibit is historically accurate.


As you tour the museum, you will find a collection of Amerindian and African artifacts, as well as a collection of pieces from the colonial era.
