“Small but informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

This was a great little find at the cruise ship dock in George Town. The building is the oldest still standing on the island. It has the best gift shop that we found and great public restrooms. Well air-conditioned, it makes for a great stop.

“CAYMAN HERITAGE RIGHT ON THE SEAFRONT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

This quaint wooden building right on the seafront in George Town, Grand Cayman has been lovingly restored since Hurricane Ivan 2004. Just the right amount of heritage to enjoy in an hour or so, each room dedicated to a theme, with very creative displays. The National Museum shop on the ground floor reopened soon after Ivan. A wide array of beautiful Cayman crafts are for sale - weaving, basketry, jewelry, art, paintings, maps and postcards. A must-see museum, never a yawn.

For a very good 'at a glance' look at Cayman's heritage, don't miss the CI National Museum!
