Overview

The Cayman Brac Museum, the oldest Museum in the Cayman Islands opened its doors to the public on December 3rd, 1983. Through the years our efforts have been focused on preserving the unique history of Cayman Brac & Little and creating informative exhibits. The Museum’s home is the Old Government Administration Building built in 1933 which housed the Post Office, Customs, Treasury and much more under one roof before it was replaced by a new building in 1983.

The museum is a cute little place with lots of antiques and artifacts that islanders use. Gives lots of info on the storm of '32 so if you like to see a bit of history it's worth the stop. They accept donations as entrance
