Residents always receive free admission in Grand Turk - The founder of the Museum had one major demand and that was that all residents would be able to visit the museum for free, today we still honor her request.
School Group Visits - Both locations frequently welcome school groups from all schools. Students range in all ages. The Grand Turk location does not charge for school group visits and Providenciales charges a minimal amount. Please contact us in advance to schedule your class.
