Incredibly well preserved with all kinds of hidden treasures. The pile of anchors was a photographer's delight! There were vistas from all angles and I could feel the history all around. I was all over the grounds and one of my friends went into the big house and said it was packed with all kinds of wonderful stuff. There was... More

If you're in Bermuda, you must visit this historical museum! You will learn so many interesting facts about Bermuda's history contained in this largest fort on the island. The military buildings hold many fascinating artifacts and the discriptions are well worth reading. Walking around the grounds, you will see some of the historic cannons once used, and you will also... More

This tour took us a little over 2 hours and we didn't walk all the way down to the ramparts. The tour consisted of a fort like structure with several outbuildings, an underground bunker, the commissioners house (jam packed with exhibits), and old rampart buildings that they haven't yet renovated. It had a mixture of everything from war memorabilia, currency,... More

For me it was eye-opening to learn about the role Bermuda played in the slave trade. The museum has many artifacts from the time period plus there are great views from the top of the hill.

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
