The National Museum of Bermuda, at a stone throws distance from the Royal Naval Dockyard Pier is a delightful place to spend a quick 1 - 2 hours in Kings Wharf, Bermuda. Juxtaposed on the corner of the island, the Commissioner's House from top of the hill offers panoramic views of the Bermudian waters and beyond. You can learn about... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Bermuda Maritime Museum. Very informative displays about Bermuda history, especially in the Commissioners house. If you are prepared to spend a few hours here, there is so much to learn about Bermuda, remarkable how much has happened on a relatively small island in the middle of the Atlantic. Exceptional views all round. As... More

Bermuda Maritime Museum is situated at the Dockyard at the tip of Bermuda. The whole area is well worth a visit with lots to see & do. Although the museum is not interactive I personally found all the displays very interesting & learnt a lot about Bermuda which I had not previously known. I particularly found the history of slavery... More

If you're interested in learning about the history of Bermuda, then this is a great place to visit. There's tons to see on display and each article/item has a story to it. This museum is located in dockyard so the views from here are amazing. You really feel like you've gone back in time and are experiencing all the history... More

Dockyard has so many... More

Visited in March 2014 before the start of the cruise ship season so it was not busy at all. Admission is a total deal as both our kids were free (ages 3,11). Exhibit wise, the 3 that really stood out were the shipwreck hall, the electricity in Bermuda exhibit and the history of slavery. All very interesting and well presented.... More

This is a wonderful museum with an extensive history collection. Be prepared; there is an lot of walking and things to see here. The governors house was especially wonderful with beyond fantastic views and wonderful history lessons; there are different rooms , with artifacts, and explanations-each room tells about an era of Bermudan history- this was very interesting and informative....

Small museum, but we found it enjoyable with items from wrecks and history of Bermuda items. The old fort was interesting, but as this is so far from everything else on the island, unless you are here in high season or going to swim with dolphins, skip the LONG trip to the end of the island.

Enjoyed this museum. It's close to the cruise port an if you have a few hours it's fairly inexpensive and has some nice history.
