“Knowing, understanding, and appreciating our history and heritage allows us to effectively confront the issues of the present, shapes our identity and our lives, and strengthens our purpose in the world.

“With over 80,000 artifacts in its collection, the Museum exhibits cover a range of diverse topics including Bermuda’s cultural links with the West Indies and Azores, trans-Atlantic slavery and slavery in Bermuda, Bermuda’s defence heritage, shipwrecks and early Bermuda settlement, the building of Dockyard and much more.

“NMB’s 16-acre property also contains jaw-dropping views, massive cannon, local watercraft, a stunning mural and a children’s playground and playhouse that make it fun for all ages.”
