The national museum is a great place to learn about the history of the island and see a lot of artifacts found from shipwrecks nearby. Unfortunately for us the Commissioners House was still closed but the rest of the grounds and exhibits more than justified the small $10 entry fee. Anybody seriously questioning the price for a lovely small museum... More

We were here while they are restoring the Commissioners House so that wasn't open but it didn't matter. The exhibits that were open were wonderful and informative. Make sure to look for the Prisoners in Paradise Exhibit down the stairs to the High Cave and Armory. Look for the signs and go down the stairs. The history this museum tells... More

The museum is heavily under construction and they still charge $10 dollars. I believe it should be $5 dollars entrance fee because everything is closed off and under construction due to the recent hurricane this past fall. The only perk of the museum was that it allows you to see Bermuda from very tall heights for amazing pictures.

Lots of info about this historic site and it's role played during the Revolutionary War and The War of 1812. Must see.

Enjoyed the well organized and informative displays. Fascinating exhibit on electricity in Bermuda - not what we expected to see. An added bonus was that we got to see dolphins close up.

If you love history, this is the place to visit! Being an American it's very cool to know you are standing in a place that is older than the USA. You can feel the history of the place! The only downside is that the mansion at the top of the keep is still under repair after the island was struck... More

This was our first stop in Bermuda after our cruise ship docked in the Royal Dockyard. We started by touring the "fort" but there isn't much to see. The centerpiece of it all, the Commissioners House, is undergoing renovations. It seemed everywhere we turned, there was another sign that said something was closed. Ugh. But then we found the actual... More

This was one of the first places I visited when I made my first trip to Bermuda in 1993! On that very trip while we were walking around the grounds we found what looked like a portion of an old pipe. Totally forgetting to bring it to the front desk on our way out we sent it to the museum... More

My wife and I just made our fourth visit to the Bermuda National Museum, `and wish we had NOT bothered. One building has been updated, one building is now devoted to the "Dolphin Quest" (swimming with dolphins) which has NOTHING TO DO WITH A MUSEUM. The third building remains as it has for years, with the centerpiece being a large... More

On our recent cruise we toured this museum and fort right where the ship is docked. The minimal $10 admission goes to renovation. You can wander for hours thru the various bldg and enjoy incredible views in every direction. Great view of the ship, and the wonderful fauna throughout. Detailed shipwrecks and even the swim with dolphins area. Nice afternoon.
