“Learn about the Cayman Islands”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

While walking in downtown Georgetown we spotted the nice looking National Museum and decided to visit. It is the oldest public building on the islands and is about 200 years old. We were treated to a very well done video presentation and enjoyed learning about the culture and history of the islands. There is a limited small gift shop that had good prices. Adult pricing is $8 but there is a senior rate of $6.

“A great way to see more of the island”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We walked from our hotel, the Sunset house, to this business to rent bikes for our last day of our stay on Grand Cayman. we had been diving all week and had seen very little of the island. Biking is a great way to extend your view of a community, and once outside the bustle of the harbor we were on good roads. We biked down to the south of the island, saw the local brewery, Caybrew (and tasted a few), and had a great lunch. After we returned the bikes the staff drove us back to our hotel. the bikes came equipped with a lock and although they were not in prime-tuned condition, on flat roads with no winds we did fine on them. The only concern is that we had to return them before they closed at 5pm. It would be nice if the bikes could be returned to an after-hours location so we could have had them until dark.

“Delightful 'Old School' Museum”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This little gem is both interesting and informative, the staff are friendly and proud of the exhibits, answering questions and explaining things.

A place you could take children and they could learn without realising it.

“Good overview of history of Cayman Islands”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Takes about 30 mins. to see the film and go through the exhibits. Nice overview of Cayman Islands. Small gift shop. Worth the time & cost to visit.
