I did not think that I would find the museum as interesting....really well done. The information and detail about the slavery, the boat races, the evolution of Bermuda was fascinating.

So much to see here, from a cave to the ramparts to the Commissioner's House. And we didn't even know there were dolphins -- spent an hour with them and their trainers.

I found out quite a bit of information about the Bermudians. I will say that you have to walk up a hill to get to the commissioners home. you can actually see cruise ships docked and great view of the water. It was really hot inside the museum and I smelled mildew in the coinage room, and could not stay... More

This museum is housed in different buildings on very spacious grounds. It's chocked full of history and details and gives a thorough background to how the island developed over 500 years. It was neat to be able to tour each building, see the Dolphin Quest and enjoy the spectacular view. One note - to see the entire exhibit, there is... More

This is such a well done museum. After spending a couple days in Bermuda we were very interested in learning the history. The exhibits were just right in the amount of detail. The little children's museum is so cute. There is a beautiful little playground and dolphins to watch. The kids enjoyed these things while the adults took in more... More

Upon entering and buying our tickets, we asked how much time we should allow. The answer was 45 minutes....ha! Please allow at least a few hours! There is lots to see here and if you also want to enjoy the dolphins, allow even more time. Go up to see the Commissioner's house after you've gone through the other buildings. View... More

The visit to the National Museum and Commissioners House is really a highlight of a visit to Bermuda. There is a lot of history packed into the visit so be sure to leave enough time. The exhibit on Slavery in Bermuda was particularly interesting as it told a very complete and detailed history of the slave trade and its impact... More

If you visit the Royal Naval Dockyard, you must visit the National Museum as well. You will go back in time to learn much about the history of Bermuda, various explorers and Bermuda's rich nautical history. The admission to the Museum also includes a great dolphin demonstration with several dolphins going through a variety of tricks led by their trainers.... More

Hubby and I decided somewhat last minute to go into the museum and our only regret was not going earlier in the day. We only had about an hour and a half and really could of used a good 3 hours to see it all and read everything. We paid $15 each, got a brochure/map and headed out onto the... More

There is so much to see. We gave ourselves around and hour and half and it wasn't quite enough. It has a very relaxing vibe so you really can browse for ages and read everything. The Island has a very rich history indeed!
