Heritage Collection Museum, East End

Across from the East End Pond
East End
Anguilla
Tel: 264 497 4092
Concierge.com's insider take:

This private museum, the result of curator/owner Colville Petty's passion for the history of Anguilla, displays artifacts from the island's early Arawak inhabitants, as well as documents from 19th-century plantations and photographs of the island from the early 20th century. Tens of hundreds of Amerindian artifacts have been uncovered by the Petty including archaic stone and shell tools and masks, pottery shards, and ceremonial zemis. There's also a room devoted to the 1967 revolution, in which islanders rebelled against gaining independence under St. Kitts. This may be the only case of rebellion in the colonies in which the rebels fought to remain colonized. Anguilla is now a British Overseas Territory with its own elected officials and a governor appointed by the Queen.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 5 pm. Closed September through October.
