Museum Of Antigua And Barbuda Reopens


The Museum of Antigua and Barbuda has reopened to the general public, following the closure, forced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mr. Walter Berridge, Chairman of the Historical and Archaeological Society, which manages the Museum, said that it was no easy task to get re-opened as all the national protocols had to be implemented.

“We contacted FirstCaribbean bank for assistance and they immediately agreed. In addition to hand washing, there will also be sanitizing stations and social distancing. Masks must be worn at all times and no more than 5 persons will be allowed in the main gallery at any time,” he said.

Speaking during the presentation, the bank’s country head, Ladesa James-Williams, said that a museum is a very important institution as it documents and preserves a country’s historical and cultural heritage.

The Museum will be open to the public between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Mondays to Thursdays and on Fridays from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. The Research Library will remain closed but enquiries can be made via [email protected] or by calling 462-1469/462-4930.

  1. I actually have always liked this museum, it is truly a nice place.

    Maybe Calvin Ayre or something can donate $1-2 million to help upgrade it?

    With bit of money the place can be made to look really nice!
