National Museum of Bermuda

About

Explore more than 500 years of Bermuda’s history, from the settling of the island to its importance as a hub of shipping, sailing and boatmaking. The National Museum of Bermuda, formerly the Bermuda Maritime Museum, occupies several historic fortifications in the Royal Naval Dockyard, including the Commissioner’s House, Casemates Barracks and The Keep, Bermuda’s largest fort. Inside, you’ll see gold bars, jewellery and other treasures recovered from centuries-old shipwrecks by scuba diving archaeologists, or learn about the more than 90 forts around Bermuda in the Defence Heritage exhibit. And kids can crawl through a lighthouse and giant moray eel at the Museum Playground & Playhouse.
