Attraction details
Owner description: The Cayman Motor Museum, located on Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, is a unique attraction that features some of the world's most special, rare, and one-of-a-kind automobiles.On display are 80 vehicles which collectively provide an historical tour of motoring throughout the world—beginning with the very first automobile ever produced, an 1886 Benz! An exact model of the first vehicle ever to be driven in the Cayman Islands — a 1905 Cadillac — has a place of special prominence in the museum.Of special interest both to children (and “adult children”) is the ultimate crime-fighting vehicle, the original “Batmobile” that squired Batman and Robin around Gotham in the 1960s television show. An exact replica of the “Batcycle” is also on display. Moviegoers will recognize the 1929 Yellow Rolls-Royce that appeared in the movie of the same name, and “royal watchers” will be attracted to the 1956 Daimler DK400, Queen Elizabeth II’s first limousine.Racing and speed aficionados will marvel at the sleek Ferraris (nearly a dozen classics, all in mint condition), Maseratis, Corvettes, and Jaguars. Magnificent Rolls-Royces (including a 1930 “Phantom”) and Bentleys (including Sir Elton John’s 1963 classic) abound, beckoning viewers back to an era of meticulous craftsmanship and unsurpassed luxury.The Museum is a great cruise ship excursion or a great place to spend an afternoon while on vacation to the Cayman Islands. Our gift shop offers unique auto memorabilia and souvenirs to the general public. The Cayman Motor Museum is also available for private functions and special events.

I am a car guy and this place was the "car fix" I needed on our vacation. The Ferrari collection is one of the best I've seen. The presentation of the vehicles and their quality was a treat. Even saw one of the original Bat mobiles. The security guard was really nice and pointed out some special museum items that can me over looked. There is a lot packed in this venue. Call before you go to check the hours as they seem to follow the Cruise Ship Schedules.

if you go I suggest you do so between one and 2:30 in the afternoon after the cruse ship passengers have left - it is not large and it can feel crowded if a large party is there at the same time you are. A nice way to spend a half hour or even a bit more.

This is a fairly new museum on Grand Cayman's (west end, close to the Turtle Farm, the Tortuga Rum Cake store and the Cracked Conch restaurant). We had some time to kill and a cool car museum fit the bill. Enter through the gift shop, then go through some doors to see a line of red cars - Ferraris, Dinos. All the signage was very good and the other displays were interesting, as well. We saw antique children's cars, a collection of old coffee grinders, a diner setting from the distant past (seniors would recognize this), a copy of the Bat Mobile, Cayman's very first automobile, and many other antique classic cars - all shiny and well-preserved/restored. The museum is not large but it does attract tour groups from the cruise ships, we were told by the manager. All in all, it was a pleasant change from beach, water or shopping activities.

The showroom was not crowded, expect with cars. The cars are literally millimeters from the next and you can't really see and experience the cars. You can take pics of the front and grill, but can't check out the rear end or interiors. The staff was friendly, the info on the cars was great, and their collection is nice (lots of ferraris, rolls, caddys, etc.) but I thought it would be different. We spent about 30 minutes in the museum.

This was a nice change of pace from shopping and going to the beach. And there are many cars to see. There must be 20 Ferraris! But, just so you know... it will probably take you about and hour to see them all. And, if you aren't really interested in cars...you could probably walk through in 25-30 minutes. Glad I did it, but I love cars!
