Learn about Grand Turk’s local and natural history at Turks & Caicos National Museum. Set inside a quaint, white, two-storey building, the museum houses items related to Cuba’s nautical history. On the ground floor, find the remains of a 16th-century shipwreck, the original lens of the Grand Turk lighthouse, and a 3D exhibit of a coral reef. The second floor is dedicated to the history of the island’s early settlers, the Taino people. Find a replica of the Taino paddle made from driftwood, which will give you an idea of what sea life was like for the indigenous population.

A wonderful small museum with more information then you could imagine. From the ship wrecks to the salt mining to the space program. Fascinating history in this small town.
Beautiful island, great tour. Hope to return some day.
