So interesting!

It may be small, but it is very well curated and you learn a lot! History of the island, details about fish and other island creatures.

If you're on Little Cayman, take a few minutes to stroll through the Little Cayman Museum. It will only take 20 minutes or so and you will learn about the interesting history of the island.

I spent a few minutes basking in the cool Little Cayman afternoon breeze while reading some interesting facts about the Island. The museum's environs are inviting. Once you are on the property, be sure to read all the posted signs, they are troves of valuable insight into the flora and fauna of the Island.

This museum is rather small but it is on a small island. I think that the history of the island adds another layer that would surely be missed. The things on exhibit tell about the English connection, the connection to the sea, pre scuba, and some natural history. Always a plus to have a bit of culture. The photographs were... More

This was a wonderful place to visit, with pictures and artifacts showing the history of the islands (Grand, the Brac and surrounding islands). It is a quick visit, even if you read everything describing the pictures and artifacts, you'd be here less than 2 hours. But, nice to get out of the sun at the hottest time of the afternoon....

A short distance from the airport and "downtown". The museum gives a good idea of the history and the life of little Caymanians over the ages. Run by volunteers, they have collected as much memorabilia a little island possesses to tell it's story. Worth a visit and importantly, the cool of the air-con on a hot afternoon.

The Little Cayman Museum is far and above what is expected on the quaint little island. It has a fantastic collection of local island history and underwater photography. Walk through the history of the Caymans during the heat of the day or on your last afternoon after diving. Hours 1:30-3:00. It is free, but donations are encouraged and well deserved!

For what it is, a little history of a little island, it is very well done. Life was very difficult and isolated back then. Well presented.

We stopped by on our last day since we couldn't do the afternoon dive and fly out in the morning. Little Cayman history is very interesting and it is well worth your time to stop by.
