The exterior is under renovation, but you can enter from the Library. Not very large, but interesting to see some of the things that belonged to Bermudians through history. Great exhibit of the Duke of Windsor memorabilia from his coronation.

Seems like whenever someone bequeathed their "historic" collection of furniture, portraits, plates, war memorabilia, etc. it ended up at this small museum. Still interesting for a short visit but it might be better to do a guided tour to get a better understanding.

We stopped in for a bit of Bermuda history, and found a sweet, older woman who is a wealth of information. We were so pleasantly surprised.

This was a nice little museum with some good original artifacts. It is right beside the park and the library. It was an old building but had a lot of character.

I spent about half an hour in this small museum - it has several rooms filled with information, however I took a quick walk around and read some of the information. It's free but you are encouraged to give a donation.
