Twenty-Five Years: Piece by Piece
Our current changing exhibit, launched in November 2015, commemorates our museum's 25th year anniversary. Twenty-Five Years: Piece by Piece provides visitors with a comprehensive look at the history and achievements of the museum since its opening to the public in November 1990, and features 25 objects that showcase the richness, diversity, and complexity of the Cayman Islands’ heritage, history and culture. Some of these objects include a crocodile, an olive jar, onion bottle, Wreck of Ten Sail cannon encrustation, pistol, blue willow plate, militia button, church spire, baby rocking cradle, wompers, sextant, the first telephone switchboard and a World War II jacket.
