From Montego Bay to the World

The permanent display was opened on National Heroes Day, October 21, 2014. This

display showcases a general history of Jamaica with a focus on Montego Bay and

Western Jamaica. With this exhibit greater vibrancy was added to the space with new

information graphics, artefacts and particularly with the introduction of audio-visual

media and an interactive booth.

The permanent display has received favourable reviews from residents of Western

Jamaica who consider National Museum West a welcome contribution to Montego Bay

as well as an important educational resource. The official opening was attended by

approximately 300 people.
