Welcome to 2022

Warmest wishes to you for the year 2022. Over the last two years we have faced many challenges and uncertainties and thus far we have survived. However, we still have to contend with the pandemic. For 2022, The UWI Museum is officially reopening its doors to you our valued stakeholders. All that we ask is that you contact us to schedule your visit. We will NOT be accepting walk-ins. 


The Sluice Gate at Mona

Located on Hermitage Road, near The UWI Mona Campus main gate, is a small brick structure. Unlike the other historic remains on the Mona Campus, this piece is neither connected to any other structure, nor is it situated within the immediate proximity of other ruins.


The Republic of Barbados – Sovereignty in Totality

Astounding, wouldn’t you say?The little island of Barbados has claimed sovereignty in totality!Fifty-five years ago, on a day like today, November 30, Barbados ceased National independence, en route to full autonomy.


Claude Rahir & The Murals

Situated on the Mona campus are two very iconic murals. In 1979, Belgian artiste Claude Rahir along with students of the then Jamaica School Art (now Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts) created two artistic masterpieces, one on the front wall of the then Caribbean Institute (School) of Media & Communication (CARIMAC)  and the other on the three-story external wall of the Assembly Hall.  On a visit to Jamaica to restore the paintings in 1996, Rahir participated in a radio interview, where he shared how he came about doing the pieces in Jamaica.
