The Cayman Islands National Museum is a museum in the Cayman Islands. It is housed in the former Old Courts Building on Harbor Drive in George Town, Grand Cayman. The museum is dedicated to the preservation, research and display of all aspects of Caymanian heritage.

Opened in 1990, the museum's beginnings can be traced to the 1930s when local resident Ira Thompson began collecting Caymanian artifacts as a hobby; in 1979, the government purchased Thompson's collection and it now encompasses a major portion of the museum's collection. The museum contains over 8,000 items and artifacts ranging from coins to a 14 foot catboat. The Natural History Exhibit features a 3-dimensional map depicting the underwater geological formations that surround the Cayman Islands.
