Established in the 1980s and opened in 1991, the Turks and Caicos National Museum is housed in one of the oldest stone structures in Grand Turk Island, Guinep House, located on Front Street to the north of Cockburn Town, the capital of the archipelago. The house, built prior to 1885 in local limestone by a former shipwright, was named after the large guinep tree in the front yard. Its structural material came from local shipwrecks, including a ship's mast, which is one of the building's main supports.
