Nassau Public Library & Museum Tours

A library may not be the first place people plan to visit on a trip to the Bahamas, but in Nassau it should definitely be on the list. Here the public library is housed in a historic octagonal building from 1798 that formerly served as a colonial jail, making it a unique and interesting spot peruse the books, which are kept in the jail cells. The library also does double duty as a museum, with colonial documents, historic prints and native Arawak artifacts on display.

Practical Info

Located near the waterfront on Shirley St., the Nassau Public Library & Museum is just two blocks south of the cruise ship terminal. Visitors can stop in to explore the building and exhibits for free, or for a small fee even become a library member.
