“Father and Son visit - brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

From the opening video that greets you to the excellent exhibits around the old courthouse/gaol/library this is a brillinat way to spend an hour or two. The entrance fee is worth it for the opening video experience itself and then as you walk around you get a feeling of how proud Caymanians are of their heritage. Visit now!

“Don't Pass This By”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

It's always nice to know the history of the place you're visiting and this was just the place to do that. It wasn't so large as to be overwhelming but still informative & interesting. Don't miss it!

“Gives you a feel for the Islands' history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Small museum located in the oldest building on the island. Don't skip past the film....there is a lot of information there. It is a small museum, but has well done displays, friendly staff, and lots of interesting artifacts.
If you want to know more about the Cayman Islands than what you see from your resort, I would recommend you stop here.

“Some interesting information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The introductory film had a lot of information about the island and was well done. There were several different displays of items from politics on the island to nature.
