Cayman Islands National Museum

The building of the Cayman Islands National Museum dates back to the 1800s and is a focal point of George Town. Every history tour of the island will make a stop here, since the museum is dedicated to the preservation, research and display of all aspects of Caymanian heritage, both cultural and natural. As a bonus, you can buy one-of-a-kind souvenirs at the gift shop of the museum, including a beautiful selection of ornate Caymanite jewellery and gifts. The proceeds go to finance museum maintenance and educational programs.

Do & See

Grand Cayman is a treasure chest of fun activities, history and culture. The remains of the colonial era fortification Fort George greet you right as you step off the ship. The Cayman Islands National Museum and Cayman Maritime Treasure Museum are a short walk away from the port. Further north, make a brief stop at "Hell"— a jagged football field–size area of limestone rock formations.
