  • This is a small but very good museum. There is lots to see in a small building. The video that starts the tour is very nice, and they have an interesting gift shop. I learned a lot about the Cayman Islands by investing a small amount of time! Tickets are $8 for adults, discounts for children and seniors.
  • Well worth a visit. Small well curated. Visit the museum early in your stay. You will enjoy your stay more when you have information about the history of the islands.
  • Excellent small museum of Cayman islands history. There is an introductory video and several rooms to tour and enoy. It also covers some of the Cayman islands industries as well as histories. Many photos and artifacts to enjoy. There's also a small gift shop on site and restaurant.
  • This place is small, but it gives a nice history of the Grand Cayman area. There's a movie at the beginning that tells quite a bit about the islands and the culture.
  • Great spot to shop. Also the small takeaway food spot behind the place is awesome.
