We stopped here and were pleasantly surprised. This small museum house many relics from the early 1900's. It took about 40 minutes to walk through. Everything from old tools, utensils, and clothing is on display. The room with pictures and quotes from the hurricane of 1932 and Paloma was interesting.

A small collection of island artifacts neatly organized and displayed. Somewhat random but easy to go through and free. About a 30 minute visit.

Jmrobotics, Thank you for your review. One of the joys of being a small island full of history, is the opportunity to share a vast amount of information within a small space. We hope you will visit us again in the future and see the changes we make. More

My family visited the local Cayman Brac Museum. The museum has a variety of tools, pottery, clothing and furniture from residents on the island. There is an excellent section on the 1932 Cuba Hurricane that went directly over the island. The stories are all first hand accounts of the storm as there was little photography at the time. I expected... More

The museum is a cute little place with lots of antiques and artifacts that islanders use. Gives lots of info on the storm of '32 so if you like to see a bit of history it's worth the stop. They accept donations as entrance

A very small but very interesting museum about the island and its people. Curator was very friendly. I enjoyed the history regarding the 1930s hurricane that came over the island. The will of the people to exist back then is incredible. A must see while visiting the island.

If you want to experience the culture of the island and understand how so many people have lived as well as flourished. They can share it all because they have recorded the voice of those who have passed away but told their stories helping preserve their history.

The museum is tiny, really only 3 rooms, but it shows all about the history on the island. There's 1 room solely dedicated to the hurricane in 1932 that ravaged the island, and the old government administration counters are still on display when you walk in. A nice way beat the heat and learn about the island. Plus admission is... More

This museum is small, but provides a lot of information on the history of Cayman Brac. The room dedicated to the 1932 hurricane was fascinating, keeping the attention of my 19 year old son. We had an even greater appreciation for the caves we visited later in the week.
