Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a lovely cultural center above the harbor, adjacent to the bus terminal. That is not a clock face on the tower- it is a wind dial. The ship-shaped weather vane on top turns with the wind and that turns the hand on the face to the dial to indicate the wind direction.

There was something going on inside. There was a very formal greeting line and a very traditionally dressed gentleman greeting people as they arrived. It was cool. I sat outside and had some lunch on a covered picnic bench and watched. Although in the middle of Hamilton, I felt very relaxed due to the grass and space.

Great staircase to climb to second floor to Art Gallery. Beautiful Bermuda cedar stairs. Gallery is intimate with smaller rooms.
Shepard Fairey exhibition was on display. Organization of art on the major wall was a mix of traditional to modern to reflect bermuda people and history.

Just show up and be prepared to walk. He is a native Bermudian with a great speaking voice. Even though we had about 12 people it was easy to hear him as he projected very nicely. He gave a good history of Hamilton as well as a little bit of how the Politics worked. He also took you through the neighborhoods so you got to see things that were not on the "standard" tours. You get to go through one church and also there was a brief stop at the Bermuda Monetary Building to look at the money. We were on a Cruise ship and there were two ships in port so about 7,000 people and we were surprised that there were so few people on the tour. We did head over there on the first day so maybe everyone else was on their way to the beach. He is known by everyone and you make frequent stops for him to give hugs to folks along the way. His costume is quite striking and you can take pictures of him. If you like walking tours then this is a great deal. We did tip him as this was one of the better tours that we have been on and much better than riding on a bus.

For a $5.00 admission you receive personal attention and information about the exhibits as well as an offer to hold any packages you might be carrying (very convenient). Many of the works are on permanent exhibit. A current exhibit: Marking Territory: A Focus on Bermuda’s Landscape included many beautiful, interesting En Plein Air works. There are also beautiful sculptures and some older works. By cool I mean much appreciated A.C.! There is also a separate exhibit of local work, some of which is for sale.

I started off by walking around the Town Hall which is lovely and than inside to the arts centre which is well worth a visit but the walking tour is a MUST!

There is a free walk each weekday at 10:20 leaving from the lobby with the Town Crier. Eddie Christopher, who is a wealth of knowledge and a man of the people of Hamilton, he had more handshakes and kisses on the tour than I have had hot dinners. The charm of this gentleman is abundant, honestly he was passionate about Hamilton and Bermuda and took us to the cities outer limits that the maps do not even list to give us an overall perspective. Great knowledge of the history and architecture with interesting stories to tell and happy to answer any questions.

Tips are welcomed and appropriate as this type of tour would cost around $20-30 normally. Do yourself a favour and join Eddie.

We viewed the art when you first enter the building, we viewed the gallery on the second floor as well. But we were in quest to see local art from native born artist. Behold we found a exhibition on the third floor. Pics show that is was an exhibition of 'Trash Art' and in my opinion it was great. It is unfortunate that the media used came from the trash found by the artist not in the proper location even exists. But hopefully this was rise the awareness of pollution due to basic trash not being probably disposed. The exhibitions change about every 3 weeks on the 3rd floor.

I visited this structure while here in town and we enjoyed the art inside the building on our self directed walking tour. We reviewed the markers to understand as much of the history as we could while looking around inside and outside the building. There was a handicapped ramp on the front of the building where the steps were located.

The building has s spacious, interesting, and very clean.
We were especially appreciative of the art gallery. The works presented were unique and often thought provoking enough to stimulate more research.
This gallery is mostly for adults.

A nice place to stop for pictures of the city hall, its grounds, and architecture and other associated features. In the downtown area next to shopping and eateries.
