Museum Living History Summer Camp
The Grace Bay Campus hosted its second annual living history summer camp, July 23rd to 27th. The 28 campers learnt the traditional arts of basket weaving from, net knitting and making of rag rugs. They even cooked outside. They visited the farm and saw chickens lay eggs, also saw goats and pigs. The bearing okra trees that they saw on the farm was a source of inspiration for their own okra tree-planting project. They were transported to the late 17th – early 18th century by a visit to Cheshire Hall Plantation followed by a lively and interactive presentation of the many traditional uses of plants. They also learnt traditional dance, much to their delight. Playing cricket in the afternoon was always highly anticipated. They learnt about the animals we share the island with and ways to coexist with them. The trip to Little Water Cay to visit the iguanas was exciting, especially since the Iguana mascot made a special appearance. It was a great week of learning and lots fun!

May 18, 2018 we celebrated the ways of days past with our Back in the Day Event at our Grace Bay Village location on Providenciales
The Turks and Caicos National Museum would like to thank the community celebrating our second annual International Museum Day Event at the museum in Grace Bay, Providenciales with us. The museum’s Caicos Heritage Homestead Exhibit came alive under the ‘Back in the Day’ theme which was well executed with dramatic performances, food, music, dance and traditional craft. The tremendous participation and support from the community is an indication of the interest in knowing, practicing and passing on our cultural heritage to the next generation. A special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for making this day a success.
