Visited this small museum in September 2018 while on a dive trip to Grand Cayman. I generally enjoy museums and appreciate the educational/cultural value they have. This was a nice little museum that started with a video about the history of the island. The exhibits...More

Learn how Grand Cayman differs from most other Caribbean islands (for example, no humans lived there until European colonization, and very few slaves were imported, ever). Interesting and professionally-constructed displays; great place to spend an hour or so.

We collect flags of countries we visit, and headed here for a Cayman flag. We were suprised that the museum gift shop had such a fabulous collection of very good quality of souvenirs - much better than the schlock shops in Georgetown. We came back...More

It is always nice to have a better understanding of where you are visiting. Grand Cayman has a rich history with some unique features. The museum is worth a visit while strolling through George Town.
