Junkanoo Expo

Explore the history and culture of Junkanoo, the carnival-party with bright colors, and intricate costumes. Junkanoo Expo houses some truly amazing costumes and masks and makes a great, quick attraction while in Nassau.

What to Expect

Guests are invited to walk through the small museum to view the many colorful costumes. While exploring the exhibits, you are likely to run into Mrs. Nash Ferguson, who owns the museum. Feel free to ask questions and talk about the costumes to make the most out of your experience.

The museum is actually a house re-purposed to showcase the many costumes and hats. As it is right off the cruise dock, you may need to look for it a bit. However, it is a popular attraction, and there are signs to help you spot it.
