It’s been a great week here at the Museum, which I’ve spent preparing new guided tours for the opening of the cruise season in April. The new tours include a shipwreck snorkeling tour, a military tour, and several different behind-the-scenes tours of the museum. The shipwreck snorkeling tour includes half an hour of snorkeling in the wrecking yard in front of the museum before traveling up to the north end of the island to view the lighthouse. The military tour will focus on the Naval Facility on the north end of the island, while the behind-the-scenes tours will allow visitors to learn about the conservation of artifacts and the preparation of exhibits. These tours, which will be offered solely off the Museum’s website, are going to be the best things to hit the Turks and Caicos since the Molasses Reef Shipwreck!
