Albert Lowe Museum


Albert Lowe Museum

Parliament St, Green Turtle Cay

The name “Lowe” has impact on Green Turtle Cay and beyond. Alton Lowe is considered the unofficial artist laureate of the Bahamas. His art appears on a number of the islands’ postage stamps, as well as in his local studio. His father, Albert, was known for his model boat-building. Alton restored this 19th-century home, which reflects the New England colonial-style architecture that Loyalists brought to the islands after the American Revolutionary War. He named the museum, which opened in 1976, for his father.

Its period-furnished rooms hold Lucayan artifacts, furnishings made out of the mahogany that once grew on the islands, and historic paintings and photographs of pineapple-farming, shark-fishing, turpentine producing, hurricanes, and other island memories. Small and charming, it provides a perfect, kid-sized taste of local history.
