The National Museum of Bermuda is my kind of attraction, the place is steeped in history and you can spend many hours taking in the military, maritime, architectural, financial, political, social heritage. I recommend spending at least half a day here, you should take a big bottle of water with you though as there aren't any water fountains and there's... More

Since we were only going to be in Bermuda for parts of 3 days on a cruise, I figured a museum was a trip I would have to forego. The first morning we arrived in Bermuda, it was raining. So our snorkel excursion was pushed out. We now had a free morning but needed to do something inside away from... More

A must see in Bermuda. There is a $15/adult fee that give you access to the entire museum for the day. You can leave and come back during the day...keep your receipt! The map you are given at the entrance is clearly noted. You walk around thru various rooms each filled with historic artifacts all pertaining to Bermuda. The high... More

The Fort had a lot to see. Could have spent the whole day there. Interesting to view and learn about the history or Bermuda. The dolphin area was small and looked more like captivity than a sanctuary but all in all it is worth a visit.

Definitely worth the visit, especially if you love history. The Commissioner's house is beautifully furnished. There is much to see and experience.

An amazing amount of Bermuda history packed into one place. There is fee while were there it was 15 dollars per adult. I wish we had discovered the Museum earlier in the day because we need much more time to explore all it had to offer. Wear your walking shoes. Enjoyed the open atmosphere and the assumption that most museum... More

If you are in the dockyard, you have to visit here. Some great history from the slave trade to the Second World War and later. The house in in superb condition, as are the grounds and other buildings. Set aside at least two hours, but worth it.

We had two hours left in Bermuda until it was time to board the cruise ship. This museum, located on sixteen acres, is literally right across the street from the cruise ship -- it's the amazing old stone structures that the starboard side of the ship is looking at when docked. Since it was so close, we had time to... More

Our ship docked at King's Wharf and we walked off and into the Dockyard. We stumbled into the National Museum of Bermuda...it cost $15US per adult. We decided to go in because, well, it seemed like the thing to do. We were surprised at how extensive the museum is... it provides an excellent history of Bermuda, especially as it relates... More

A major part of the Royal Navy Dockyard where the British built the fortress to protect the island from invaders. Very interesting and historic. Costumed characters led groups. Free admission. of the British occupation of the island.
