The museum was very informative and full of artifacts from shipwrecks. If you are into history and the Bermuda Triangle, you would enjoy it.

Grat place to visit. There are loads of exhibition rooms to wander in and out of. It's well done and interesting. We spent a few hour here. There are nice views from the top and the building is interesting too. Well worth a visit. The Dolphin quest is in the same location so you can see that there too.

We paid $10 each to go into the museum, first I got to sit and watch people swimming with the dolphins, great fun. There were a couple of buildings on the lower level to walk around with interesting ship wreck memorabilia etc. We then took the hill up to the big colonial house. Each room has a different exhibition and I found the small room with the currency really interesting - how it changed from UK£ to US$ and all the notes and coins are there to see.Some rooms are set out as replicas of what it would have been. The rain poured whilst we looked inside and took the opportunity to see more - well the ladies did whilst the men yawned profusely outside. No it is not for everyone but we had a fantastic view of the cruise ships, had interesting exhibitions and to top it I got to watch the dolphins - the $10 to watch the dolphins made the trip for me but I think my husband would pass on returning. 1-2 hours at the maximum is all you need.

Really interesting maritime museum and a must visit when in Bermuda. You can spend several hours here and still not see everything.

Please note that two institutions have been combined -- the Bermuda Maritime Museum is now part of the National Museum of Bermuda. (Trip Advisor's reviews for under both names should probably be consolidated.) In any event, this is a fantastic place to visit to learn Bermuda history! I highly recommend it.
