Small quaint museum that has an interesting video about the area, and some interesting displays of local artifacts, including items from the ship wreck of one of Columbus' ships.

Don't miss this attraction if you're at all interested in learning more about Turks & Caicos Islands. While the exhibits are modest in presentation, the history is fascinating and complete.
