he Springvale Eco Heritage Museum is nestled on a 200 acre plantation in the lush hills of the Scotland district.
This museum was once the Springvale Plantation manager’s house, but has since been converted into a unique showcase that reveals the folk heritage of Barbadian life in days of past. This transformation was the brainchild of the current owners Newlands and Denise Greenidge.
With emphasis on preserving the island’s rich culture and folklore, especially in the Scotland district, this folk museum focuses on the period from emancipation to the 1930s.
On the grounds, nature walks are also available via meandering trails leading to the stream through groves of bananas, coconuts and bamboo, with locally grown vegetables and medicinal herbs dispersed in between.
Behind the café is a library, which house an interesting collection of books with a wealth of information on Barbados and bygone days.
There is also an artist studio and gallery located on the premises. OPEN Monday to Saturday:
10am – 3pm (Sundays by appointment only) Admission:
BDS $10.00 / $5.00
