A quirky little history museum, the building itself is a speck of Bermuda history, designed by the first postmaster of the town, famous for his eccentricities. It shares a building with the library.


One cannot discuss the history of Bermuda without making mention of the men who sailed the seas surrounding the island. At the Bermuda Historical Society Museum, guests will find displays of ceramics imported by early sea captains, artifacts that once belonged to Sir George Somers who was stranded in Bermuda's reefs in his ship the Sea Venture in 1609, and more. Also on display is a collection of Bermuda coins, old cedar furniture, and antique silver.
