The Education Department is responsible for the development and implementation of all educational programmes that accompany every exhibition. This unit is also responsible for outreach programmes in schools, communities and Organizations Island wide.


Exhibitions are a very important part of the function of National Museum Jamaica, as this is one of the main ways that the museum disseminates information to the public. These exhibitions can be either temporary or permanent, and features a range of subject matter all focused on Jamaicaโ€™s history and ethnography.


The National Collection comprises over 21,000 artefacts dating from the pre-Columbian era of Jamaicaโ€™s history up to modern times. Each artefact we collect, store and care for is an invaluable part of the story of the Jamaican people.
