Treasures at Museum

International Museums Day.Still001The week of Monday, 24 June 2013, GIS Spotlight showcases museum treasures, revisits a Bodden Town landmark and takes another look at invaluable training for prison inmates.

Museums bridge past and future through the present. The exhibits offer a tangible history lesson through preservation and reflect the social ethos that shaped living for previous generations.

Join GIS Spotlight to celebrate International Museums Day that uses this year’s theme to link museums, creativity and social change. See how learning can be fun and fun activities can teach. And kids: did you know that 250 bird species are recorded in our tiny Cayman Islands and some feathered friends fly down all the way from the Arctic? Discover more on GIS Spotlight.

On our next two stops, we take you back to see what distinguishes the Mission House in Bodden Town and transport you inside Northward Prison to witness the programme that is helping inmates make positive career choices.

Also check out our newest uploads to the CI Government Facebook page and our YouTube page at CIGovtInfoServices.
