Good overview of island life and especially life when the hurricane went through in 1932. It must have been terrifying. No charge but we felt like we needed to leave a donation.

Has some cool history of some of the worst hurricanes that hit the island. May not be what you are expecting to have at a museum, but overall worth the stop.

We did an island tour while on Cayman Brac and our driver suggested that we stop and visit this small museum. He was right! It was worth it. Lots of interesting exhibits of what life was like in the early years on this quiet island.
