Many famous artists spent time in Bermuda- not surprising considering its beauty. We enjoyed our visit here to learn about the many who worked here. Our favorite painting was the above referenced work. Worth the trip but the museum is much more then that. Worth a visit- do go.

When tired of all of the gorgeous Bermuda beaches, I like to escape to Masterworks! It's truly a local gem of a museum, best $5 you can spend to experience the history, the culture and most importantly the art of this wonderful island.

We were lucky to come across the Masterworks Museum on the grounds of the Botanical Gardens. The gardens are at low ebb in midwinter, but the Museum is a sparkling gem year round.

We went especially to see their new exhibit Room with a View. The Gallery we enjoyed even more was exhibiting "stippling" paintings by Carlos Santana which just blew us away. Go very close to the paintings to see the fine fine details and shading. Do not miss this gallery.
