Turks & Caicos National Museum
The Turks and Caicos National Museum have a busy time ahead of it. On Wednesday 23rd October we are opening our new Lucayan Gallery to the public. The gallery tells the story of the first inhabitants of the Turks and Caicos, and how their history is being rediscovered through archaeology. To assist the new gallery the Smithsonian Institution in Washington have kindly lent several items that were donated to them from the Caicos Islands around 100 years ago. These include a stone axe and a stone figurine recently carried back here by the Museum Director.
The Gallery opening coincides with the Turks and Caicos National Museum hosting the 13th annual general meeting of the Museums Association of the Caribbean. 13 countries are being represented at this meeting and after the first two days of official business on Tuesday 23rd and Wednesday 24th October, there are two days of papers. The first day's papers on Thursday 25th October is on Slave history of the region and will include a presentation from the Museum Director, Nigel Sadler, on the recent research into slave history of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The second day of papers covers Museum Practices. Members of the public can attend but as space is limited we will require confirmation of your interest - please phone 946 2160 to book a seat.
The Museum staff welcome any feedback you have about the history of the Turks and Caicos and its interpretation or of the Museum's work. Please e mail your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
