Excellent exhibits and good photo ops by the Neptune statue. Sun was so hot it was almost unbearable, so it was good to enter the exhibit buildings to cool off. We wanted to walk up the hill to the governor's house on the property for the great overlook, but just didn't have the strength after walking downtown Hamilton.

Even though we have visited Bermuda on several other occasions. This was our first tour of the museum. What a wonderful and unexpected treasure trove! There is so much to see and learn here. Give yourself plenty of time to roam the grounds and read. The pass is good all day, so take a break if you can and return for more rather than skipping through the exhibits. Be sure to use the map provided at the entrance so that you don't miss a single section.

The national museum is conveniently located at the Royal Dockyard where our cruise ship docked. The Commissioner's House chronicled the history of slavery in Bermuda and Portuguese history. There was a collection of coins from 1600's to recent. There was a nautical museum in one of the surrounding buildings that had a lot of information and artifacts about the shipwrecks around Bermuda.

For a fairly quick, inexpensive history of the island, you must visit this museum. It is extremely interesting and very large with many out buildings and an old fort, etc.

Easy walk from where the cruise ships dock. Great experience.
