“History at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Senior citizen admission is $8....one of the best bargains on the island. Watching the dolphins was nothing special, but the commissioners house and grounds is one of the best museums of its kind in a spectacular setting. Naval history artifacts over several centuries presented quite well. Noteworthy money and coin rooms. A must see for any taste.

“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.
