Attraction details
Owner description: The Cayman Motor Museum, located on Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, is a unique attraction that features some of the world's most special, rare, and one-of-a-kind automobiles.On display are 80 vehicles which collectively provide an historical tour of motoring throughout the world—beginning with the very first automobile ever produced, an 1886 Benz! An exact model of the first vehicle ever to be driven in the Cayman Islands — a 1905 Cadillac — has a place of special prominence in the museum.Of special interest both to children (and “adult children”) is the ultimate crime-fighting vehicle, the original “Batmobile” that squired Batman and Robin around Gotham in the 1960s television show. An exact replica of the “Batcycle” is also on display. Moviegoers will recognize the 1929 Yellow Rolls-Royce that appeared in the movie of the same name, and “royal watchers” will be attracted to the 1956 Daimler DK400, Queen Elizabeth II’s first limousine.Racing and speed aficionados will marvel at the sleek Ferraris (nearly a dozen classics, all in mint condition), Maseratis, Corvettes, and Jaguars. Magnificent Rolls-Royces (including a 1930 “Phantom”) and Bentleys (including Sir Elton John’s 1963 classic) abound, beckoning viewers back to an era of meticulous craftsmanship and unsurpassed luxury.The Museum is a great cruise ship excursion or a great place to spend an afternoon while on vacation to the Cayman Islands. Our gift shop offers unique auto memorabilia and souvenirs to the general public. The Cayman Motor Museum is also available for private functions and special events.

“Cayman Motor Museum”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We had a rental car so going to West bay to see the museum was easy. From Georgetown we headed up the 7 mile beach area to West bay. It took about 15 minutes to drive there. The museum was packed full of nostalgic antique cars. If you like corvette there were some beauties there. Also the famous Batmobile from the 60's TV series, some Bentley vehicles (one which once belonged to Elton John), Rolls Royce vehicles (one once owned by Englebert Humperdink),
and some old Harley Davidson motorcycles. Also, many other vehicle makes and models to look at. The museum admission was 15 bucks but it was worth it to see the collection. There is a gift shop at the museum with tee shirts and various souvenirs.

“Unexpected pleasure for a car nut.”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We learned about this museum after we arrived in Georgetown. Only a few miles north from town, easy to reach by car. It opened a few years ago. The collection belonged to Andreas Ugland, a Norwegian shipping magnate and competitive race boat driver. Lots of cars starting with 1886 Benz, unusual European makes, racing and sport cars, original Batmobile, Ferraris, Porches, Maseratis, Bentleys, Rolls Royces, motorcycles, racing boat and many other items. Fun place for a car nut.

“Calling all Auto Enthusiasts”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Very easy to get to from the cruise port Took a local bus $2-3 I surprised my Husband with this excursion!!! The Museum had the Original Batmobile which was displayed and featured as you would expect!! many Ferrari's from various years a few motorcycles, Cars previously owned by Elton John and the Queen many cars from the past We really enjoyed visiting the Museum however the cars were quite swished in and for the most part were only able to see the front of most cars or one side More space would certainly allow for a better visual on all sides of the cars and overall better experience Having said that, it was an excursion we really enjoyed If you are visiting Grand Cayman and are a Car Buff then its a must see!!!

“Great if you like cars”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

This seem like a good tour on our cruise to take our friends to Hell and to the car museum. The ride over gave us a good tour of the island and the car museum was a treat. Jam packed with cars of all different types. From Mustangs to T-Birds to Rolls to MGs, there is something for everyone. Nice easy tour you can take from your cruise ship. Hell, Rum Cakes and Cars. What could be better.
