While not a overly large, the museum has a good bit about the history of Bermuda. The best part of our visit there was the docent. She was a child during WW2 and had a great many interesting stories and experiences to share, a real wealth of knowledge about the island!

Staffed by very knowledgable volunteers this is well worth a hour or so of anyones time. It is not very large with just a few rooms, but is nonetheless full of interest and very informative.

This is a great museum with so many interesting artefacts from Bermuda's past on display and not all behind glass . Fascinating to walk around and discover so much more about Bermuda's - and our family's- history. Volunteers are very helpful and knowledgeable , we all really enjoyed it and would recommend to visitors .
