Community Mosaic Project
Kicking off as part of Museum Day on Grand Turk we will be creating a mosaic on the Garden and Museum walls.  The mosaic will reflect all aspects of island life including history, culture, wildlife and nature.  This will be an ongoing project that will turn something ordinary into something extraordinary!

Residents receive free admission
The founder of the Grand Turk location had one major demand and that was that all residents would be able to visit the museum for free.  Today we still honor that at the Grand Turk location and all residents are able to visit the museum at no cost.
