Cayman Brac Museum

The oldest museum in the Cayman Islands is Cayman Brac Museum, a small structure that was originally built in 1933 and now houses an impressive collection of artifacts that tells the tale of how life has progressed throughout the islands through the years.


Before the Cayman Brac Museum was a museum it stood as a bank, customs office, treasury, and then a post office. The front room of the museum pays homage to the building's past lives with reconstructions of the once-facilities. Moving throughout the museum visitors will encounter a collection of dental pliers of old, a scale model of a catboat, and exhibits discussing the history of ship building, turtling, destructive weather, and old-time living.
