Art in Bermuda spans the local and the international; the modern and the traditional; the street art standouts and the museum masterpieces. Whether you’re into paintings, murals, sculpture, photography, or other art forms, you’ll find an impressive collection of art to admire, much of it inspired by the island’s natural beauty.

Take A Self-Guided Art Tour in Hamilton

Stroll the streets of the City of Hamilton to admire murals, sculptures, and other installations by local artists, many commissioned through the city’s VIVID Public Art Initiative. You’ll see brilliant depictions of Gombey dancers and a variety of island treasures, along with artwork honouring emancipation in Bermuda. Take a free self-guided tour at your own pace using a map from City Hall. You can scan the QR code on the plaque next to each piece to learn more about the artist and the artwork.

Enjoy a Museum or Two 

The Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art features more than 3,000 watercolours, lithographs, photographs, and etchings. You'll see works by legends such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Winslow Homer along with pieces by Bermudian artists. Spend an hour or so at this gem of a museum, located in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens in Paget.

Visit the National Museum of Bermuda in Royal Naval Dockyard to see one of the island's most in-depth and impressive works – “The Hall of History,” a 1,000-square-foot, two-story mural telling the story of Bermuda over the centuries. Bermudian artist Graham Foster spent about 7,000 hours painting the dramatic work, which depicts sailing ships and other expressive subjects. The former home of the British Royal Navy, Royal Naval Dockyard now has a buzzing art scene anchored by the museum and surrounded by galleries, shops, and restaurants. 

The Bermuda National Gallery in Hamilton houses remarkable fine art and decorative works, along with major travelling exhibitions. Pack a picnic and find a spot on a bench in the sculpture park of the Queen Elizabeth Park behind the museum. Over on the island’s east end, the St. George’s Historical Society Museum inside Mitchell House Museum features architecture and artefacts representing Bermuda’s storied history.

See a Stellar Hotel Art Collection

Fast forward to the contemporary art era at The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, which boasts a top-notch art collection throughout its lobby and public spaces. You'll find works by big-name artists like Andy Warhol, Banksy, Ai Weiwei, Damien Hirst, Philippe Decrauzat, and even Nelson Mandela. Guided walking tours are offered on Saturdays at 10 am and by special appointment.


Enjoy the  City of Hamilton’s carefully curated gallery at the City Hall Arts Centre, affectionately known as “The Peoples Gallery.” Established in 1952, this longtime venue showcases changing exhibits of local works in a white-walled, light-filled space. Inquire about workshops and special events with the Bermuda Society of Arts (BSoA).

Need a boost of energy? Stroll a few blocks for a fresh brew with a creative vibe at Hamilton’s Rock Island Coffee, a boutique coffee shop serving fresh-baked treats and delicious hot and cold drinks. Enjoy the colourful works by Bermudian artists all over the walls.
