  • We paid the full amount for entry even though it was 3 pm and the place was closing at 5 pm. The museum is very informative and well mantained. The grounds are well kept, but once you head up to the armory area the grass has sheep poo everywhere so keep an eye out. They have a local farmer bring in the sheep to graze and mow the lawn. They were adorable! But we were so weirded out initially. The view from the top was so lovely :)
  • We stopped here in February, which is cooler, but also no cuise ships, so no crowds! Interesting historic military installation to ward off bad influences...
  • Self guided exploration of historic Keep, Fort Walls, cannons, military attire and armament, historic boats display etc across several buildings. You don't need to be fit to do this walk but some is uphill and not paved.
  • Worth the price of admission for any history buff. Nice exhibits and excellent views.
  • This place has an amazing mural of the whole history of Bermuda, that was unveiled by the Queen. Interesting exhibits on the military history of Bermuda
