“A Museum Even Teens Will Love”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

My wife had read that the museum was excellent, however when we had an hour or two to kill in the Dockyard, and my wife suggested it, it met with typical teen reactions from my kids of, "Awww, do we have to go to a museum on vacation?"

That quickly changed, and they then wanted to know when they could go back. It's hard to describe what about this museum that is so appealing. There's nothing interactive, there's nothing inherently "fun", but it paints a rich history of the islands from many different perspectives. The many outdoor parts of the museum also contribute to it not feeling like a typical museum experience.

Bravo Bermuda - you did a great job with this.

“Dolphin quest”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Did not swim with the dolphins for $130 per head, but it was quite exciting.

The museum includes an air conditioned tribute to many of the wrecks found not far off shore. Housed in Arnold fort near the Dockyard, I felt this area was one of the must see exhibits in the dockyard.....even if that meant walking up to the type floor of the main house to get a great view of the area.

Stay away form the beach....they charge admission and sucker you in with free putt putt golf. Those in the know take a cab ride to get away from the area as there are many other beaches nearby.

“Enjoyable museum”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

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