Cultural History Gallery

The Cultural History Gallery offers exhibits on a variety of cultural themes including political and judicial systems, social movements, seafaring history, trade, and medicine. Video re-enactments capture historic events such as the “Wreck of the Ten Sail,” and the 1820 court hearing of enslaved person, Long Celia. Dynamic cultural vignettes examine three aspects of Caymanian life – church, home and industry, while dioramas and wall panels tell the story of Cayman’s historic turtling and fishing industry.
