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.

This was a fun stop. We originally went there to look at the original Batmobile, but it has a great collection of old cars that made for a great visit in the afternoon.

The Car Museum has a lot of cars that are a part of a private collection owned by a wealthy shipping guy. There are a lot of fairly rare cars and some cars with unique histories such as being previously owned by the Queen of England. The cars are jammed in together so closely that you can only look at them by standing in front of the hood. My husband is a car enthusiast and was disappointed because he couldn't look inside the cars. The entire museum takes about 30 minutes for the average person to walk through. If you are a car enthusiast like my husband you might want to stop in to see the cars, but for the average person, the cars are just so crammed in that it is hard to enjoy.

After reading other reviews on TripAdvisor, I urged my husband to make a visit here on our recent trip to Grand Cayman. For an island location with minimal signage, this place has the most unusual and rare European and American cars. The collection also contained unusual Honda and English motorcycles. I was the only visitor when I toured it at 10 am on a weekday, so there were no crowds to deal with. There is a small gift shop with some items related to the cars displayed, and some general car-related items. The ticket agent and security guard were very helpful in answering questions and were extremely friendly. I would advise spending about two hours there for full enjoyment. It is only a few hundred yards from the Cayman Turtle Farm.

This attraction really is for the vintage car enthusiast. The museum has an interesting selection of vehicles including the very first Bat-mobile of Batman and Robin fame. Other interesting exhibits was Elton John's Rolls Royce and an interesting selection of Ferrari. Did this attraction as part of a larger tour taking in "Hell" and the Tortuga Rum Cake Factory. I thought the souvenir shop was a bit pricey.

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.
