This museum is actually contained within the footprint of the Keep Citadel, which is several acres containing walls/ramparts, several outbuildings, and the Commissioner's House at the highest point. Lots of walking if you want to do it all, and you should, and very little is...More

as someone who has spent a considerable amount of time on museum studies in a university setting, I applaud Bermuda on this excellent museum. The fee is nominal compared to most US museums ($10 if I remember correctly, but don't hold me to it) and...More

The site is gorgeous with a more than 180 degree view of the ocean when you're atop the ramparts surrounding the buildings. The main building (Commissioner's House) features lots of small galleries with a wide variety of exhibits. Our favorites were the rooms with Bermudian...More
