Barbados Sightseeing: Historic Places: Springvale Eco-Heritage Museum

Springvale Eco-Heritage Museum is a treasure tucked away in the Barbados countryside in the northern Scotland District.

Entering the museum at Springvale is like taking a step back in time. You will be immersed in a world of yesteryear surrounded by antique furniture and old-time cooking and household utensils.

You can just imagine the washerwomen up to their elbows in soapy water using the local 'juking board' while the iron sits over the coals getting warmed up!

Contrast that with the luxury of a mahogany-laden living area complete with comfortable planters chairs. In fact, the number of pieces of mahogany in a house was a sign of the wealth of the homeowner!

The museum is owned and run by Mr. Newlands Greenidge who will fascinate you with tales of his boyhood days in the area and astound you with his knowledge of Barbados' history.

Behind the museum is the most amazing tropical forest with local fruit trees and vegetables, medicinal herbs and a small stream. It's a most tranquil and relaxing spot.

A stop at the Springvale Eco-Heritage Museum is well worth it and with its proximity to Harrison's Cave, Welchman Hall Gully and Flower Forest it can be easily included in a wonderful day of Barbados sightseeing.

To visit the Springvale Eco-Heritage Museum and other fascinating places in Barbados why not try a Barbados car rental?
