Nicely done inside and outside in the garden with all the statues! Makes you try to remember this all started with the loyalists around 1786.....cool place!
Stories and artifacts, photos, etc. of GTC from its earliest days. Lots of family history too. Hard to believe they moved one house 2 or 3 times before it settled where it is now. Pick up some original local art while you are there.
If you are interested in the history of GTC, this is the place to go. Old photos, painting and ship models help tell the story. The kitchen out in the garden is a must see.

This cozy little museum has been located in the heart of New Plymouth for over 35 years. Everyone who visits Green Turtle Cay should stop and spend an hour or two. So much of the island's history to be learned.
