They were greeted at the gates of Guinep House by Nikki Jennings our tour guide. After a brief introduction to the Guinep House the Governor and his wife Jill, saw one of our new exhibits the “old kitchen.”  Then it was time to learn about the Molasses Reef Wreck.

The Governor and Mrs. Beckingham look on while Fred Glinton describes the history of the old TCI flag.

Once upstairs Fred Glinton took over showing them the many exhibits which are housed in the Museum.

Afterward they toured the Botanical and Cultural Garden and then came to the Science building where Governor Beckingham looked through the archives. It was wonderful to showcase the Turks and Caicos National Museum to the Governor and Mrs. Beckingham, as they really have a passion for history.
