Simartin Museum

The tiny Simartin Museum in a century-old house on Front Street is a mine of information for those interested in the island's history, from Amerindian times through to the colonial period. Among the artefacts on display are pottery from the island's original inhabitants, the Arawaks, and cargo salvaged from a British ship that sank off the coast in 1801.
