SAN SALVADOR MUSEUM

ABOUT

The San Salvador Museum opened in 1992 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the landfall of Christopher Columbus.

It was originally housed in the old courthouse and jail in Cockburn Town and featured exhibits depicting the First Encounter between the native Lucayans and the Europeans.

Relocated to the site of the Old School House the museum is presently being refurbished and will reopen with new exhibits and a Resource Centre.
