“surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Thought the museum would be boring and why pay $10 each to go in but it was great- very informative. It was great wandering around and seeing the goats/sheep loose made me think about having them in stead of lawnmower. What would the neighbors think? Anyway lots of history and well appointed.

“Very informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

There's lots to read and learn at this museum located at the Royal Dock Yard.
The only part I find no good was, when I went, 2 of the buildings were closed. It was unfortunate.

“A Museum Even Teens Will Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

My wife had read that the museum was excellent, however when we had an hour or two to kill in the Dockyard, and my wife suggested it, it met with typical teen reactions from my kids of, "Awww, do we have to go to a museum on vacation?"

That quickly changed, and they then wanted to know when they could go back. It's hard to describe what about this museum that is so appealing. There's nothing interactive, there's nothing inherently "fun", but it paints a rich history of the islands from many different perspectives. The many outdoor parts of the museum also contribute to it not feeling like a typical museum experience.

Bravo Bermuda - you did a great job with this.

We loved the old fort and the exhibits here great history to see. There is a walkway along the top of the fort that has a beautiful view.
