The Museum

ITS BEGINNINGS

From the very beginning St. George's College has shown a great deal of interest in preserving and sharing its history. Since 1915 different members of the community have cooperated by donating material, time and work to this effect. Although the original plan was to create a Museum of Natural Sciences by 1978 this developed into the idea of forming a museum of the school’s history in order to reconstruct and protect the institution's memories.
