Housed in an 18th-century home in scenic Speightstown, Arlington House Museum features three floors of interactive exhibits that will keep the kids entertained while they learn about Barbadian heritage and history. Using state-of-the-art fun and interactive multimedia attractions, each floor of the museum tells the story of an important chapter in Barbadian life.

The journey begins with a look at Speightstown's coastal living, while the second-floor exhibit Plantation Memories explores the historic, cultural and economic ties that bind Barbadians to the legacy of sugar production. On the third floor, pirates await landlubbers in Wharf Memories, an interactive history of Speightstown's rise as a seafaring port of trade.
