Much of the history of Bermuda revolves around the Sea, and the Bermuda Maritime Museum does not forget this. Exhibits detail the history of Bermuda, the Sea that surrounds her, and the men that tried to tame both.

What to Expect

This extensive museum features plenty of interesting exhibits including the history of the slave trade and one on the tourism industry.

The Maritime Museum is housed in a building that was once one of Bermuda's largest forts, though instead of protecting the island, is now holds one of the largest collections of maritime artifacts there is.

Bermuda Maritime Museum is located on Ireland Island North, which means visitors to this part of Bermuda will have easy museum access during their visit. If you wish to stay somewhere near the museum, there are a reasonable number of lodgings to choose from nearby.
