Man-O-War Museum




Welcome to the Man-O-War Heritage Museum!

Preserving the Cultural Heritage of Man O War Cay for present and future generations.

The Man-O-War Heritage Museum is located on the quaint island of Man-O-War Cay in Abaco Bahamas.  The Island is well known for its charming people, crystal clear blue waters and its boat building heritage. You can check out our photo archive here on our official web site.


Great news!

We finally got the the Non-Profit status from the Bahamian Government. This means we can now finalize the sale of the property.

Why this house? This family’s story is not unlike so many out island residents. Close knit families and communities are a way of life here and it is our goal to honor the Sweeting family and this historic home by restoring it and welcoming visitors to our island. Restoration of a building is easy, it’s the telling of a family history that is the fabric of our lives.



Help the museum cover moving expenses!  For a tax-deductible receipt, you can donate here.
