While Bermuda has gorgeous beaches, it also has a fascinating history and families can learn more about it at the National Museum of Bermuda, which incorporates the Bermuda Maritime Museum. Located at the western end of Bermuda at the Old Royal Naval Dockyard, the museum features six grounds, seven bastions and eight historic exhibit buildings that explore 500 years of local history and culture. Kids will most likely be fascinated by the bastions, canons, shipwreck artifacts, local watercrafts and maritime art all housed inside Bermuda’s largest fort. More exhibits include Prisoners in Paradise, which examines Bermuda’s role as a repository for colonial prisoners and the story of those held captive in Bermuda. The exhibit, Progress of Power: The Story of Electricity in Bermuda, features interactive displays and historic electrical equipment. To find the museum, follow dockyard directional signs to the Maritime Museum inside the large fort, just across the street from the Dockyard Craftmarket and Frog & Onion Pub.
