Stepping back in time in Barbados

The Caribbean island of Barbados has an intriguing history that reflects the lifestyle, ambitions and resilience of  its people, including the Amerindians (the earliest known inhabitants of the island), African slaves and their descendants, and British colonial powers.

The influence of these peoples is evident in the way we live on the island, as well as in the physical buildings and structures that have stood the test of time and seen dramatic changes over centuries.


Many historic buildings are open to the public, transporting locals and visitors to a by-gone era and chronicling the development of our society into the proud island nation that exists today.

Visit on the wonderful musuems such as the Barbados Museum, Arlington House, George Washington House and Exchange Museum; explore a historic Signal Station; walk around the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Bridgetown and the Garrison; reflect and remember at a Slave Burial Ground; celebrate religious freedom at the Synagogue and Jewish Museum; be awed by technical accomplishments at the Concorde Museum.

In Barbados you're sure to find a historic site that will captivate you.
