  • If you're going to pay for one touristy thing, make it this museum. One adult ticket is $15 at time of writting. We spent several hours exploring the grounds and the well-curated exhibits throughout the fort. Beautiful 360° views from atop the commissioner's house. There is even a natural cave on the property. Goats roam free to keep the grass short, make sure to close all gates and watch for poop.
  • If you come to Bermuda, it's really worth it to come and visit the National Museum of Bermuda. I was there during America's Cup week and the while it was busy, there was plenty to see and do without being rushed. If on the island, go visit.
  • Fascinating history and a lovely place to visit. Sitting outside on the upper level at the Commissioner's House was very peaceful, but I understand it's very different when there is a cruise ship docked.
  • Not a huge number of exhibits but beautiful grounds and the freedom to explore on your own. You can also do the Dolphin Quest here, which looked interesting.
  • Way more stuff here than I was expecting! Let's be honest you can practically, and from some places actually, see cruise ships from here. I was expecting tourist trap city as my wife dragged me to this place. I begrudgingly paid $15 for an adult ticket and put on my let's please the wife and get this over with face. Boy was I wrong. There are multiple exhibits here, some great pictures taking opportunities, and some really cool artifacts. Read the stories and learn about the things that are there. If history interests you then you will find stuff to like here. Allow a couple hours for learning... Then head to the Frog and the Onion near the entrance and order a Dark and Stormy.
