Exhibits and Offerings

The museum houses a collection of artifacts and displays that detail the history of Grenada, from home life to traditions on the island, and of course, an exhibit dedicated to life on the plantation.

There are three different gardens on property: the Orchid Garden, the Blue Garden, and the Sugarcane Garden. Each is well kept and open for tours.

Tours of the grounds are available, in which a knowledgeable guide is there to talk you through the working of a plantation, including stories about Belmont Estate's history, and how raw product becomes those that are sold on shelves.

Often museums present for their visitors more than just the ability tour the property. Something to quench your hunger and thirst are also often provided for visitors at an extra cost. Belmont Estate is one such location.
