Owner description: The American Civil War from a Bermudian perspective: a museum chronicling the island's involvement with the Confederates during the Civil War.
Reviewed June 21, 2014

My husband and I came across this former Governor's residence whilst strolling around the Island. We both thought it to be charming, with a dash of history about it. There was an elderly lady overseeing the building and grounds who was extremely pleased to be welcoming visitors from the UK to something of which she was extremely proud; she could not have been more helpful.

The building is part of The National Trust's overseas connection and is free for UK members.

It was very surprising to go to a museum about the role Bermuda played during the USA civil war and have no mention whatsoever of the slavery which was the reason for the war. It was a very small museum. It was not very interesting. I suppose if you were bored and it was raining it isn't terrible. It was $5 per person so cheap by Bermuda standards.

There are three parts to this place - the building itself has a scandalous history, there is a video film of Bermuda giving its historical setting and then the larger display of what Bermuda was up to during the American Civil war. If you have any interest in Confederates and Unionists then you will be glad you came; if you know nothing about it you will also be glad you came . My favourite is the board about Dr Luke Blackburn - I shan't give it away, you will have to visit for yourself.
It will take you less than an hour, it is suitable for children but not suitable for wheelchairs - stairs to main museum and steps to shop are unavoidable. The entrance fee is just $5 for an adult.
Note there are no facilities or drinks offered but there is a good cafe across the road and a place to eat alongside the dock around the corner. Don't walk past it - walk in.

You could easily walk right past this little gem of a museum. The exhibit is on the upper floor of an old building that once was the Globe Hotel and before that housed one of the island's governors. It focusses on three aspects - the building, Bermuda's historical context and thirdly what Bermudians were up to during the American Civil War.
It is only $5 entrance fee. Or you can get a combination ticket for $10 that gives access to nearby Tucker House and to Verdmont, a short bus ride or drive away.
Will take about 30-40 minutes to see.
Central St George's on corner of Town Square.
Access by bus from all parts of island, moped or taxi.
Note - has stairs and not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
Older children would be interested but smaller ones might need a quick visit option of highlights only.
Displays are all in English.

This museum, in the Globe hotel, offers lots of interesting information about Bermuda's history, with excellent exhibits, and great value ($5 for adults). You can see and learn a lot in under an hour, for a very reasonable admission price. Also check out Deliverance on the St George's harbour pier, for more interesting historical facts, at an even better admission price.
