  • Colville Perry is an impressive curator of Anguillian history. I had no idea the depth of information we would see here. It is wonderful that he has collected and compiled the story of Anguilla...

  • Lovely place good To know the history didn't about the slavery very interesting
  • Mr Colville Petty has curated a fantastic private collection of historical items from Anguilla throughout the ages, from the indigenous Amerindians through to modern day. His dedication to showcasing this remarkable island’s history is commendable, and he is extremely knowledgable about each era and piece on display. With Mr Petty having personally experienced Anguilla’s revolution in the 60s and 70s, this section of the museum is filled to the brim with wonderful anecdotes and memorabilia from such an important era in the island’s history. We learned so much about Anguilla from visiting the Heritage Collection Museum and were more than happy to pay the $10 entry fee to support his endeavours. Would recommend a visit to anyone planning a trip to Anguilla.
