The Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts was established in 2003 with the following aims:
- To preserve, promote and exhibit the arts of the Caribbean community;
- To provide an interactive environment that encourages children, youth and adults to learn positive forms of expression, and
- To offer creative learning experiences which foster an understanding of the rich cultural and artistic traditions of the Caribbean, and their source.
