The best bit of the Dockyard

An excellent way to spend a couple of hours learning about Bermuda's past. Excellent views of the Dockyard & island can be had from here

The Commissioners house was full of very interesting historic facts and information. Wonderful views from the outside of the building and around the perimeter.

Located within walking distance of the place where the cruise ships dock, this is a nice museum that will provide anyone interested in Bermuda's history with an overview that will make the rest of their trip more interesting. There are exhibits outlining how the country was founded, lots of shipwreck information and some geological information that explains why the island... More

Museum set in large grounds and admission includes being able to visit the dolphin quest and see the dolphins do tricks. The displays on Bermuda's history are very interesting in the lower barns as well as some good displays in the commissioners house. A must visit.

The Moral that is fairly new in the Museum is the attraction that most locals are interested in, mine as well. I saw quite a few surnames of relatives that I knew. Great job to the artist.

Transformed into a national museum, accommodations first received outcasts, then slaves and finally settlers (in addition to English, many Portuguese) you can see the strong, them, the Commissioner of the house is much the story of an isolated island in the Atlantic that it is an overseas British territory! The museum is well organized and interesting! Worth the admission by... More

As a Museum Curator, military historian and author on the War of 1812, I had definite expectations and goals in visiting this site. While I was disappointed in not achieving my research goals, as there were virtually no exhibits that covered this conflict in which Bermuda was a vital component in the war between Britain and the United States. I... More

In addition to the Dolphin Quest experience, this is a great place to spend several hours exploring the historical significance of this area and Bermuda in general. Wonderful exhibits and helpful staff.

Second visit for me, first for my husband. Takes about 2 to 4 hours depending on your preferences. You wander at your own pace, but make sure you close the gate so the sheep don't wander! Kid friendly, nice to do if weather isn't beach perfect. Dolphin experience is on the grounds as well!
