We went to Georgetown and stopped into the Museum. It was inexpensive and worth the stop. It took us about an hour to watch the video and go through all the display areas.

This is a small museum without a lot to look at and really not much information. We did enjoy the little video before we took the tour. It's located right in George Town across the street from the port so it's easy for anyone in the area to get to. I do recommend going because it's not expensive and you... More

it was a very basic museum. Not too much information. The video at the beg. was nice. Not much interactive pieces. Most of the museum could probably be shown as a video.

We stopped here for fun on a rainy afternoon and were pleasantly surprised. Its inexpensive to get in but the displays and information are actually pretty interesting and extensive. Cute little place that's worth a visit to learn more about where you're vacationing!

The museum gives a pretty good history of the islands as well as has a few good displays. It is quite inexpensive,so if you are looking for a way to an hour or so and get a few fun facts about the caymans, it's a good place to stop in.

The variety of displays was impressive for such a small location. The video was creative and pleasant to watch. We really enjoyed viewing the samples of local art. And liked the sustainability displays

The museum is in a small building and houses a lot of information. I would give it a five rating but two displays were under renovation. It is a self-guided tour with a movie presentation that provides a great deal of history of the Caymans. Recommended to go see if you want to know more about the Grand Caymans than... More

A small museum a block from the cruise ships that does a good job of displaying the natural and cultural history of the Cayman Islands. When we went, 2 exhibit rooms were closed (until May 17th), but they acknowledged this by cutting the price in half to $4 USD per person. They have exhibits on the natural history, wildlife on...

For a small museum the displays are superb. Take the time to see this museum if you are stopped here for the day on your cruise. It is well worth the hour visit. It is also only minutes walk from the port.
