National Museum of Bermuda
Set within the sprawling Royal Naval Dockyard complex, this ode to Bermudan history occupies 16 acres. The property extends from the island’s largest fort to old abandoned barracks. Within those ancient walls is a mazelike museum that celebrates Bermuda
’s links to the sea. Exhibits include antique documents, boats, ship models, and maritime artifacts. There are also interactive installations. One spectacular highlight is the massive mural by painter Graham Foster which recounts the 500-year-long history of Bermuda
. It is located in the Commissioner’s House, which reopened in 2016 after an extensive 18-month restoration. The three-story building is festooned with crown moldings, wraparound verandas, and French doors that offer stunning ocean views.
