Decent size family friendly museum. We visited with our toddler and there is a playground in the museum. On top of that view from top of the museum is unbeatable. A must place to go while visiting Bermuda.

Nice grounds to wander round and a small museum to take in the history of Bermuda. Unfortunately they also have captive dolphins you can 'swim with'. Not great.

Fascinating Bermuda social history including the slave trade, relationships with Caribbean islands and more.
