Tucker House Museum

Learn about how prominent Bermudians lived their lives on the island during the turn of the 19th century when you visit the Tucker House Museum. The house was built in the 1750s, but it wasn't until 1175 that the Henry Tucker (President of the Governor's Council) and his family took up residence. They remained in the home until 1809. Now, visitors can tour the home, which retains much of their original furniture, artwork, and household items. Guided tours are available.


Visit the Rainey Exhibit and learn about a free black man who in 1865 operated a barber shop nearby and eventually became the first African American to be sworn in to the US House of Representatives.
