We stopped in here to read about the history on the island. Both the owners were very sweet and welcoming. They have a gift shop and there is a lot to see

It's a small museum but it has some interesting fact/displays about the island. The staff is friendly and there is a gift shop if you want a memento from the island. You could bike/walk to it from downtown but parking might be an issue if you drive.

We had a day on Grand Turk and the museum was one of our first stops. We loved it -- good gift shop, very friendly staff, interesting displays, etc. And there is an outdoor deck upstairs with awesome views of the beach. The first floor is devoted mainly to the "mystery ship of molasses reef" and upstairs has a variety of exhibits, including a small room devoted to John Glenn's splashdown, pictures from the Queen's visit in 1966, etc. The introductory video on the mystery ship and the exhibit labels are genuinely informative. We were visiting for the day from Providenciales (not a cruise ship) and liked having the opportunity to learn about Grand Turk. It is hard to turn away from the spectacular beaches and sea of the Turks and Caicos, however, this museum is worth it.

This a good little museum to learn about the island and other turks and Caicos islands. It was inexpensive and definitely learned a lot if you take your time.
