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!

Fascinating history of Bermuda. Well worth the visit, and education on life in the 1600's and the history of Bermuda.

Close to the dock within walking distance. A must see..being redone, back to its original condition. Lots of history from a fort to protect against invasion, to the war, to hurricanes, to a prison. All of this on top of beautiful scenery to view the ocean and the dockyard too. Great price and inside of the fort is the dolphin... More

The National Museum of Bermuda has a flock of roving blackfaced sheep, and some nice chickens, too. The setting, amidst the old Dockyard buildings, is beautiful. The present exhibit on Slavery in Bermuda was enlightening, and very sad. The model of the slaver's ship used by William Wilberforce to awaken Parliament to a horrible reality was very shocking. I also... More

I was wandering by myself near the ship and saw the sign for the museum. I had some time so I went there no having any expectations. It was a wonderful museum and I regretted not having my husband and grandson with me. As soon as I walked in the saw the dolphin quest and really wished that my grandson... More

Our second visit to Bermuda but first time to The National Museum. Impressive views from atop the Commissioners House and every room filled with antiques, maps, information, coin collections and beautiful paintings. Very informative. Take time to stroll the spacious grounds, fort and see many artifacts from sunken ships. Located at Royal Naval Dockyard, a short walk from the cruise... More

A very good museum with the bonus of dolphins. This museum will tell you everything you wanted to know about how Bermuda was discovered and has been developed. $15 each for admission which is good value. Lots of history and well set out in impressive grounds. There is also a dolphin sanctuary located here. The dolphins are all bred in... More
