The Cayman Brac Museum, the oldest Museum in the Cayman Islands opened its doors to the public on December 3rd, 1983. Through the years our efforts have been focused on preserving the unique history of Cayman Brac & Little and creating informative exhibits. The Museum’s home is the Old Government Administration Building built in 1933 which housed the Post Office, Customs, Treasury and much more under one roof before it was replaced by a new building in 1983.

learned so much about the islands damaging hurricane of 1932. Lots of artifacts like phones, tools, irons from locals who have donated them to the museum. You can even listen to first hand eye witness accounts from hurricane survivors.

We really enjoyed our visit to this little museum. It was an unexpected look at how life "had been". We were especially moved by the recollections of those affected by the hurricane of '32. The people on the Brac never gave up. We are glad they never did.

Cayman Brac Museum is definitely worth the stop. No cameras allowed. We spent about one hour there and were quite interested in the stories of the Hurricane of 1932. We recognized names of towns by looking at the old photos of the early families residing on Cayman Brac.

Small museum, but free. The most interesting were the stories and photos regarding the Hurricanes. Lots of interesting old artifacts.

A small place but worth an hour. What made it enjoyable was the person running the museum when we visited. I asked one question and after that she just lighted up and was eager to talk story. The info on the Hurricanes, especially 1932, is chilling and inspiring. From the 'guide' I realized more about the island then if I'd... More

When on the Brac make sure you pop by the museum to get a feel for Cayman. Many people see Cayman as Grand Cayman and 7 Mile Beach but a half hour visit to this little museum will show you so much more. A snapshot of the Cayman Islands and its seafaring history are shown in pictorial and video format.... More

This is a very small place. We enjoyed it for the insight into what Brackers have saved and valued over the years. Really showed how small the island is! Also how human habitation here is really very recent. We spent about an hour to cover the displays.
