The Turks and Caicos National Museum is located in a historic building in Cockburn Town. The facility is a non-profit, and receives no help from the government, but maintains a great collection of all things culturally and historically Turks and Caicos.
Exhibits here off guests the opportunity to learn about everything from natural history to ship wrecks, the slave trade, and every day life on the island. The two-story building also houses a library and a shop.
Turks & Caicos National Museum is located on Grand Turk, so guests staying in this part of Turks and Caicos will have the benefit of convenient access to the museum throughout their trip. Even though the area isn't necessarily a tourism capital, you'll still find a small number of lodgings to pick from.
