Cayman Brac Museum

Cayman Brac

Housed in a pretty white-and-blue-painted colonial house on the coastal road to Stake Bay, this small museum recounts the history of the island. Artifacts depict life for early settlers during a time when the island was largely cut off from the rest of the world. The exhibit on the 1932 hurricane is particularly moving.
