In the Scot­land Dis­trict lies a gem in the form of Spring­vale Eco-​Heritage Museum. Sit­ting on 200acres, the museum once housed the man­ager of Spring­vale Plan­ta­tion but now show­cases Bar­ba­dian arti­facts. These arti­facts offer a glimpse of life in Bar­ba­dos in the bygone days. The aim of the own­ers, New­lands and Denise Greenidge, was to pre­serve Bar­ba­dian her­itage focus­ing on the period eman­ci­pa­tion to the 1930s.

The museum encom­passes folk her­itage as well as the nat­ural envi­ron­ment. Being located amidst lush, trop­i­cal forests, nature walks are avail­able. There is also a library where you may learn more about Bar­ba­dos as well as an artist’s stu­dio and gallery where you can appre­ci­ate local tal­ent. Immerse your­self in Bar­ba­dian his­tory, appre­ci­ate Bar­ba­dian cre­ativ­ity and enjoy the tran­quil­ity of nature. All these and more are pos­si­ble on your visit to Spring­vale Eco-​Heritage Museum.

OPEN: Mon­day to Sat­ur­day: 10am – 3pm (Sun­days by appoint­ment only)
Admis­sion: BDS $10.00 /​$5.00
