The National Museum of Bermuda [NMB] is opening its doors for free to all Bermuda residents during the month of February, with residents asked to please bring proof of residency such as a license or utility bill.

“While ‘Free for February’ has been a yearly initiative at the Museum, this year NMB is excited to offer free activities for all visitors on each Saturday of the month,” a spokesperson said.

“Saturday activities offer a unique opportunity to experience the Museum in new ways, learn a new skill or craft, connect with our past and engage with people from the community.
