Pedro St. James National Historic Site, Grand Cayman

4.5
#1 of 10 in Museums in Cayman Islands
History Museum Landmark
Visit the oldest building in the Cayman Islands, Pedro St. James National Historic Site. Built in 1780, the house belonged to plantation owner William Eden, and underwent restoration in 1996 after decades of abandonment. The old manor served as the birthplace of democracy in the Caymans, where notable island citizens met and decided to vote for their representatives. Step back in time as you roam the interior, carefully restored with period furniture, and imagine what life was like for the wealthy Englishman that built the mansion in the 18th century.

  • Fun, informative, beautiful grounds and buildings. Pedro St. James was a great afternoon visit. I stayed for about 2 hours with plenty to do but you could stay shorter or longer and still have a good experience. They have a cool 4D movie presentation about the history of the house. The grounds were gorgeous and well maintained and the house was very interesting.
  • We were price comparing at various stores throughout the island and this gift shop surprisingly had the best prices! It's a small store but has a great variety of products. Also a 10% coupon in the Explorer magazine
  • Great views, cozy and tranquil location. Excellent location for outdoor events.
  • Go all the way to the top floor to enjoy a view and the great ocean breeze in the replica of the original open sided house
  • Historical attraction but beautiful spot for weddings and parties
