Upon paying very small nominal entry fee - you see the video first which is fascinating - all about the Cayman Islands in the Olden Days - the buildings - the people - the flora and fauna. After the video a tour of the Museum shows how the early Caymanians lived - how they built their sturdy homes from wattle and daub and how they made the famous rope - a huge treat to learn how this was done. The famous rope was the strongest rope on earth and was used to haul the turtles onboard the catboats and used in the maritime industry and farming - and a had a million uses - The National Museum is a real treat and shows the early Caymanian lifestyle of outdoor caboose kitchen cooking - utensils - I enjoyed every second of being in the museum and could see that early settlers of the Cayman Islands came from the area I was born in the UK therefore this connection was extremely interesting and has remained so much so that I have read most of the books published about the history of the Cayman Islands - My favourite book that can be purchased at the Museum is "Founded Upon the Seas" A History of the Cayman Islands and Their People"
by Michael Craton and the New History Committee. It is $37.50 because it is a huge book with photographs too and is absolutely priceless - it is like taking the Museum away in your handbag to study further on board ship or plane. Enjoy time learning all about the beautiful Cayman Islands and her beautiful, warm and kind people. This is the Place for all of that +++++++ tea around the corner to contemplate your enjoyable Museum visit.
