“Dolphin quest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Did not swim with the dolphins for $130 per head, but it was quite exciting.

The museum includes an air conditioned tribute to many of the wrecks found not far off shore. Housed in Arnold fort near the Dockyard, I felt this area was one of the must see exhibits in the dockyard.....even if that meant walking up to the type floor of the main house to get a great view of the area.

Stay away form the beach....they charge admission and sucker you in with free putt putt golf. Those in the know take a cab ride to get away from the area as there are many other beaches nearby.

“Enjoyable museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The museum was very informative and full of artifacts from shipwrecks. If you are into history and the Bermuda Triangle, you would enjoy it.

“Very interesting, well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Grat place to visit. There are loads of exhibition rooms to wander in and out of. It's well done and interesting. We spent a few hour here. There are nice views from the top and the building is interesting too. Well worth a visit. The Dolphin quest is in the same location so you can see that there too.

“I say excellent, he says average so it gets very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We paid $10 each to go into the museum, first I got to sit and watch people swimming with the dolphins, great fun. There were a couple of buildings on the lower level to walk around with interesting ship wreck memorabilia etc. We then took the hill up to the big colonial house. Each room has a different exhibition and I found the small room with the currency really interesting - how it changed from UK£ to US$ and all the notes and coins are there to see.Some rooms are set out as replicas of what it would have been. The rain poured whilst we looked inside and took the opportunity to see more - well the ladies did whilst the men yawned profusely outside. No it is not for everyone but we had a fantastic view of the cruise ships, had interesting exhibitions and to top it I got to watch the dolphins - the $10 to watch the dolphins made the trip for me but I think my husband would pass on returning. 1-2 hours at the maximum is all you need.

“great few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Really interesting maritime museum and a must visit when in Bermuda. You can spend several hours here and still not see everything.
