  • This red roofed building opposite the South Terminal in George Town is a little gem. For a small admission fee you can learn about the history and culture of the Cayman Islands. Don't miss the gift shop for authentic Cayman souvenirs.
  • It was really cool to see the history of the islands.
  • Don't miss this when you are here! Learn about the history and the natural history of the islands. Clever exhibits, but the animatronic figures are a little much.
  • Well worth a visit if you get the chance
  • not bad but very small
