Owner description: The American Civil War from a Bermudian perspective: a museum chronicling the island's involvement with the Confederates during the Civil War.
Reviewed 16 September 2013

This museum, in the Globe hotel, offers lots of interesting information about Bermuda's history, with excellent exhibits, and great value ($5 for adults). You can see and learn a lot in under an hour, for a very reasonable admission price. Also check out Deliverance on the St George's harbour pier, for more interesting historical facts, at an even better admission price.

This is a small museum that tells a detailed fascinating story of the Confederacy and its deep connections to Bermuda. The history of piracy and smuggling is most interesting and well described. Between the museum at the Dockyards, the Natural History museum at the Aquarium and this museum, we felt that we had a great overview of Bermudian history. The museum is located on the main city square of St. Georges. We got from here a free shuttle to Tobacco Bay Beach

A new museum opened in St Georges in the old Bridge House. Well worth a visit. The artist at this time is certainly very different.

I'm definitely glad that I stepped into this museum, as I learned a lot of history of the island, that I had not considered at all! For instance the island's involvement during the period of slavery was quite eye opening.

The Commissioner's House had a beautiful view of the water as well. Felt quite historic.

The Bemuda National Trust Museum at the Globe Hotel is a small museum housed in what was originally the Governor's House some 300 years ago. The low admission fee is worth the cost in cool air conditioning alone, as you watch an opening 2-minute video about the origins of Bermuda. The current upstairs exhibit demonstrates Bermuda's crisis and involvement during the American Civil Wars, which is a relatively unknown perspective on the mainland. Our group enjoyed the exhibit greatly and thought it was among the best offered in St. George's Parish.

We visited St. Peter's Church across the street first and had hoped to see the museum next but it did not open until 11am, so we visited the Town Square and Ordnance Island first. Our visit to the museum was just under an hour total, which is enough time to see everything leisurely and cool down in the mid-day heat, so consider this when you plan your visit to St. George.
