  • Very interesting 45 minutes or so devoted to Cayman Islands history. Very friendly and helpful staff. Several animatronic displays were fun and informative. Caution though, it is not handicapped accessible. Ok to first floor but my wife missed the whole upstairs displays. Still a must see for first time visitors or history buffs.
  • I enjoyed how very informative and creative all the exhibits are. It was a very wonderful experience, and I encourage all, young and old, Caymanian and non-Caymanian, to visit and learn about our beautiful islands.
