As the pirate capital of the New World, Port Royal was labeled as "The wickedest city in Christendom." The bustling city sank beneath the waves during the earthquake of 1692, but left enough evidence to tell its story. Silent cannons still keep watch over Fort Charles as they did under the command of Admiral Lord Nelson. Many artifacts have been recovered and are displayed in the Port Royal Archaeological and Historical Museum. Today, tourists flock here to see the remnants of another era, enjoy fine restaurants and buy some souvenirs.

The island's largest gallery has 18 sub-galleries arranged over 25,000 square feet of floor space. The gallery was first established in November 1974 at Devon House, Kingston's most famous Great House, but after eight years, it was transferred to its present location in the Kingston Mall. There are eight permanent exhibitions, including a pre-20th-century collection of historical artifacts that can be traced back to before the 1400s. There is also an international collection containing works from various countries. Admission runs about JMD50 for adults, JMD10 for children, less for children with school ID.
