We visited the Grand Turk Museum and although it is small, it is nice and informative. Lot's of reading and pictures, short video too.
The island is not really developed, feel bad for those trying to eek out a living there. Visit the museum and help their economy!

the museum was well worth the wait. Finally after 3 trips to Grand Turk we were able to visit the museum.
It is a great way to learn about Grand Turk and the treasures of the deep!

The national museum really gave us a sense of the islands' history and character, with an excellent video and exhibits and artifacts from a famous shipwreck. The new botanical gardens are lovely! We got a personal tour!.

A nice peaceful little Museum which is very informative. We easily spent over an hour in there learning about Columbus, the Salt Trade, Shipwrecks, NASA etc. It’s air conditioned as well which makes it very comfortable when it’s hot outside. A good little gift shop too.
