Owner description: A look into the rich history of the Caribbean: museum featuring fragments of a wrecked Spanish sailing ship from the early 1500s.
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Went on a tour of the island and visit to the museum. Quite a small attraction, the tour guide at the museum was quite passionate about the history of the island providing a great summary of the various wrecks and such. The museum itself was not large, so it did not take long to complete the tour, however it was enriched in the islands history, making it quite interesting and informative.

The museum is small but big for Grand Turk.They have information about the ship wreck.Which is presented very well.This has very recent information about the island as earliar history is wiped out.Its cheap and takes about 30 mts to view.

We visited the museum during a day off from diving and what a great surprise. It was soon to close but the museum guide welcomed us in and with her enthusiasm immediately engaged us in wanting to learn as much as possible. There is the wreck of the Molasses, displays about John Glenn’s touch down and much much more we really enjoyed this.

This museum is very well done and is of a higher caliber than one mat expect from such a small island. Very informative. We learned a lot and exhibits were set up in ways that made the learning fun. A good stop, takes about an hour.
