Barbados' parliament, formed in 1639, is the third oldest in the British Commonwealth, after England and Bermuda. The small state of the art museum, opened in 2004, tells the unique story of 365 years of uninterrupted parliamentary rule in Barbados. With the exceptionally high quality exhibits and clever use of interactive audio and video, a visit here is a real pleasure.

In 1998, Barbados chose ten National Heroes. These are people whose lives have demonstrated a commitment to democracy, faith and freedom, social justice and excellence. These National Heroes include a slave rebellion leader, a woman defending her right to worship, a writer and orator, a political activist, a populist leader, a public educator, a trade union leader, a world renowned cricketer, the Father of Barbadian independence and the founder of Democracy in Barbados.

The National Heroes of Barbados, entitled 'Right Excellent", are:

Bussa (?-1816); Sarah Ann Gill (1795-1866); Samuel Jackman Prescod (1806-1871); Dr. Charles Duncan O'Neal (1879-1936); Clement Osbourne Payne (1904-1941); Sir Grantley Herbert Adams (1898-1971); Errol Walton Barrow (1920-1987); Sir Hugh Worrell Springer (1913-1994); Sir Frank Leslie Walcott (1916-1999); and Sir Garfield St. Auburn Sobers (1936-present).

Dramatic and evocative sculptures, created by Barbadian and Caribbean artists to give imaginative expression to the qualities and circumstances of the life of each Hero, are key elements of the National Heroes Gallery.
