We enjoyed our brief visit to the national museum. Although small, it is well laid out and covers a lot of natural and cultural history of the area. We enjoyed the video.

Nice place to learn some history of Caymans and learn about its people. It is inexpensive and also has a small shop.

The National Gallery is showcasing art -- in so many forms, from basketry, ceramics, textiles, fibre, paper, glass, metal, and wood craft by makers who are using traditional and cutting-edge techniques across diverse practices. Everything you see is accessible and interesting. Don't miss it!

We visited during a culinary tour. It was a refreshing break during our day. Beautiful art and we even met the artist with some works displayed.

As a creative person, National Gallery is a perfect place to clear my mind and get good vibe! Love outside space for event and just chill, even for a meeting.

Art with a Caribbean flair. All kinds of media with certain sections changed out every three months. Definitely a place to see at no costs, although donations are appreciated.
