The National Museum

National Museum Logo

The Museum building not only houses the Islands’ national treasures today, but is the oldest public building in the Cayman Islands. Used as a jail, courthouse, dancehall, and postal office, among other functions, the Museum building is an important piece of our history, in and of itself.

Constructed using the traditional method of wattle and daub architecture, the Museum building dates back to the 1800s, and remains, even till now, a focal point of George Town’s harbour alongside other historical sites that include Elmslie Memorial Church, Fort George, and the George Town Public Library.

The historic building continues its public service today as the Cayman Islands National Museum, with an aim to preserve and promote Caymanian history and culture.
