Two years running I have visited The Masterworks and have had my socks knocked off by the exhibits. 2013 an exhibit on the camera and photographs of Bermuda since it's inception. Other than being blown away by the history of the island in images, every known camera style was on exhibit, including my first - the Polaroid Swinger. Even the... More

An extraordinary collection, an exceptional staff, a marvelous morning! Don't miss the Masterworks Museum, covering broad grounds of art and history, I believe that Masterworks is the defining institution of Bermuda culture.

This museum was the highlight of our recent trip to Bermuda. Though it is only 26 years old, the museum (mostly due to its amazing founder, Tom Butterfield) has amassed an impressive collection of art, including works by Winslow Homer and Georgia O'Keefe. The beauty of the museum is that the theme of all of the art is Bermuda. So,... More

We stopped by the museum on our last day in Bermuda. Imagine our surprise when it was free admission! The exhibit of Bermuda artists and their work was phenomenal, well thought out, and interesting. We were also given a (free!) lovely book of the works on display in the museum. So much more than your typical brochure and a treasured... More

I am frequent visitor to Bermuda, but this is the first time I checked out Masterworks. I'm sorry I waited so long! I was there during the Charman Competition Exhibit and the art was wonderful. All different media and themes related to Bermuda. Best part was a quote from each artist about their piece, it really made it come to... More

It was great to return after my last visit two years ago. The art continues to be excellent. The small gift shop is nicely stocked. But the interesting new find was the café. Upstairs there is food with table seating, downstairs is sofa-style comfort, or outside patio seating is available if you prefer the sun. It is just light café... More

I love museums and visit them everywhere I go, but this little gem was in a class of its own. While small, the exhibits were great and the personal tour by Tom Butterfield was outstanding. My daughter, who was with me, told our entire family that she thought I was going to burst with enjoyment. We visited in late May... More

Sometimes you can stay too long on a vacation, so on our last day, when we thought we had nothing left to see, we discovered Masterworks Museum. And what a great find it was! Masterworks is a very special little museum nurtured to life by Tom Butterfield. He is a native of Bermuda and takes great pride in his home.... More

My wife and I were looking for something to do on a Tuesday when we had nothing planned and saw a posting of a free tour of this museum. It was a quick cab ride from Hamilton. We were early so the volunteer at the desk recommended that we pay a quick visit to Camden, the official residence of the... More

Masterworks is almost hidden away from public view in the Botanical Gardens and can easily be missed. Search it out, as it is a lovely art museum at a ridiculously low entrance of $5. Tom & Elise have nurtured and developed the museum from the start, and rightly deserve praise for their efforts in bringing art associated with Bermuda to... More
