The National Trust's Open House programme runs January through March 2012.
Every Wednesday a beautiful house in Barbados opens its doors to the public to view from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
All types of houses are on show from the grand old plantation houses rich with centuries of history, to newer luxurious Bajan-Style villas. The grounds and gardens are part of the attraction. A Bookshop, Craftspeople and Refreshments will also be available.

THE SYNAGOGUE & NIDHE ISRAEL MUSEUM, Bridgetown
By 1654, Sephardic Jews in Barbados had consecrated Nidhe Israel, one of the two earliest temples in the Western hemisphere. This architectural jewel shares a walled urban sanctuary with a stylish and engaging museum, an intriguing cemetery, and a spring-fed mikvah (ritual bath) whose recent discovery 12 feet underground is of tremendous historical importance. The whole atmosphere is mystical.
