“Excellent museum, great exhibits”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The museum was very gracious and allowed us to enter with only 10 minutes remaining before they closed. We enjoyed all of the exhibits, but especially those which detailed the Islands' rich history with ship wrecks and wreckers. A must stop for anyone visiting Grand Turk.

“very limited hours”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We were not able to visit, sadly, because of the limited hours it was open - its only open in mornings, while the dives are also in the mornings, so divers would not be able to visit

“Grand Turk museum”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

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!

“Wonderful museum!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

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!.
