“Very small museum”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

It was very surprising to go to a museum about the role Bermuda played during the USA civil war and have no mention whatsoever of the slavery which was the reason for the war. It was a very small museum. It was not very interesting. I suppose if you were bored and it was raining it isn't terrible. It was $5 per person so cheap by Bermuda standards.

“Hidden away, good historical background”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

You could easily walk right past this little gem of a museum. The exhibit is on the upper floor of an old building that once was the Globe Hotel and before that housed one of the island's governors. It focusses on three aspects - the building, Bermuda's historical context and thirdly what Bermudians were up to during the American Civil War.
It is only $5 entrance fee. Or you can get a combination ticket for $10 that gives access to nearby Tucker House and to Verdmont, a short bus ride or drive away.
Will take about 30-40 minutes to see.
Central St George's on corner of Town Square.
Access by bus from all parts of island, moped or taxi.
Note - has stairs and not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
Older children would be interested but smaller ones might need a quick visit option of highlights only.
Displays are all in English.

“Excellent exhibits, great value”
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.

“Civil War history you never knew!!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

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

“Volunteer”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

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.
