Really found the Rogues and Runners museum super interesting and learned a lot. It's a small museum so perfect if you don't like to spend lots of time in a museum. A nice change from tourist shops.

My husband and I wandered in to look at the gift shop and then decided to pay to go upstairs and we're glad we did! It was a surprising, informative yet fun view into the history of St. Georges that we wouldn't have had otherwise....More
The Globe Hotel in St. George's Bermuda tells an interesting story about Bermuda, and the United States. In particular about the Union blockade of the Confederacy during the U.S. Civil War, and how blockade runners operated from Bermuda.
