Masterworks was a unexpected highlight to my first visit to Bermuda! The exhibits were beautifully presented and the range of art was surprising. The special 50 years of Rudolph was a treat! Our small group viewing of the masters collection by Mr Butterfield himself was delightful! Add this to the beautiful Botanical Garden grounds ( and the yummy lunch at... More

This is excellent Cynthia. Thank you for your review. Here at Masterworks we strive to be different and prove that bigger isn't always better. We are small and quaint and therefore can put more energy into producing a quality exhibit. Right now, "Rudolph & Friends", is one of the museum's greatest accomplishments and Tom would be happy to tell you... More

Masterworks is located on the grounds of the Bermuda Botanical Gardens. Both are worth a trip for a few hours. The gallery features hundreds on works by mostly local Bermuda artists but also houses a collection of other known international artists. The museum strives to offer periodical special events each of which is always worth a visit.

My mother and I were pleasantly surprised to find this museum and gallery tucked away in The Botanical Gardens. From the background music to the movies about Bermuda, the posters and the art pieces, we totally felt immersed. We enjoyed talking with the volunteers Kanan and the lady working the previous shift whom we forgot to ask the name: she... More

Amazing collection of art . Subject matter? Bermuda. Georgia O'Keeffe, Homer Winslow, and many more who's common denominator is depicting the beauty and splendor of Bermuda throughout the past century. Located in the beautiful batonical gardens ;hard to find; this lovely museum is definitely worth a visit.

Thank you Melissa for recognising the importance of our Bermuda themed collection. There is none other like it on the island. And believe... coming to work with the Botanical Gardens as the backdrop is an added bonus. More

The new exhibit has a mixture of styles and artists and so something for everyone. The ambience is quiet and fresh, peaceful to peruse the different images. Suitable for disabled access there is a lift to the upper floor, though one or two artworks are displayed on the staircase and so would be missed by someone using the lift. Entrance... More

For over 25 years Masterworks has evolved into an enhanced version of its former self. Never has a vision been so profound - from repatriating Winslow Homers to an O'Keeffe the founders have fostered local talent and brought the gift of creativity to the children of Bermuda. Stop to enjoy homemade fare at the cafe - take your time to... More

While visiting Bermuda last week, we happened upon the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art. What a wonderful experience. The staff were very cordial and informative. The exhibits both thought provoking and interactively fun, e.g., the bobby and the birdcage and being able to sit with Mark Twain on the bench! It was interesting to learn the Museum has a collection... More

Gaile, Thank you for your review of the Museum. We are so very glad that you found the museum experience one of excitement. We too wish that we had 1200 Winslow Homers but more accurately we have approximately 1400 pieces from a variety of artists. Thank you again for your participation of our facilities. More

We come to Bermuda once or twice a year and always take time to visit the Masterworks Museum. We are never disappointed. This time, we particularly liked the Tucker sisters' exhibits, giving us yet more insight into Bermuda's history. The quality of the display of paintings and artefacts rivals that of much larger museums. The staff at the reception desk... More

Thank you very much for this review. The Tucker Sister's exhibit is a very nice one that will be coming down in October. So if you know of anyone else coming to Bermuda before that time, we appreciate that you have already given the exhibit the thumbs up. More

I've been to this wonderful museum numerous times over the last two years and all I can say is that they have done an amazing job.
