If you are in the Dockyards don't miss this. Unfortunately, the tour agents aboard our cruise ship didn't talk much about it since it doesn't bring them profit, so even with two cruise ships in port, it wasn't crowded. It contains well mounted exhibits in air conditioned comfort. The shipwrecks exhibit tells much of the island's gripping history. I was... More

The main building has been closed on our two previous visits due to storm damage. It is now fully open after extensive repair and renovation. There is a wealth of history documented and illustrated with expansive grounds, armaments and spectacular views. Very reasonable entry cost, well worth the $15 each. Pick a day with no cruise ships for peace and... More

My husband and I recently spent an afternoon at the Dockyard. We quickly grew tired of walking around the touristy shops, so ended up here instead. We're glad we did! We learned a lot about the history and culture of the island. Of most interest were the shipwreck exhibit and the displays in the commissioners house. We also enjoyed exploring... More

Had a great time reviewing the exhibits. The curators have done a great job with the layout of the exhibits and the weaponry on display is great

This is set on a headland and incorporates the old governor's house which is full of the history of Bermuda and the slave trade. Well worth a visit and it also incorporates Dolphin Quest.

For a small entrance fee you can learn about the history of Bermuda, watch dolphins play (swim with them for an added cost) and look out over the entire Royal Dockyard and the Atlantic Ocean. A wonderful site for reflection as well.

The National Museum of Bermuda is located at the Dockyard at the tip of Bermuda. We had a water excursion planned, but it was cancelled due to inclement weather, so we decided to check out the museum and we were glad we did. The museum grounds and Commissioner's House have been well maintained and preserved. Admission comes with a map... More

I must admit, when my husband and I chose Bermuda for our honeymoon, I specifically told him I did not want to visit any museums. He purchased tickets here anyway, and although I was mad at first, I am so glad we went. There are so many beautiful things about this museum. There are breathtaking views, lots of great historical... More
