After a three-month temporary closure due to Covid-19, the National Museum of Bermuda [NMB] will be celebrating its reopening tomorrow [June 24], and a cannon firing event will be held to salute Bermuda’s frontline workers.

A spokesperson said, “The National Museum of Bermuda [NMB] has reopened after a three-month temporary closure due to COVID-19. To celebrate their first week re-open and to salute Bermuda’s frontline workers, they are firing a cannon on Wednesday, June 24th at 11am.

“If you’d like to see the cannon firing live, visit the Museum on Wednesday – the cannon will be fired in front of Commissioner’s House [admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and children under 16 are free].

“For those that can’t visit in person, follow NMB on Facebook where the cannon firing will be live-streamed. NMB will also post the video on social media channels.”

NMB Executive Director Elena Strong said: “During our temporary closure, while we were more remote than ever, we found that history and culture helped keep us together. Now that we are re-open, we look forward to safely welcoming visitors back.”

“The Museum is home to over a dozen exhibits on Bermuda’s diverse history and cultural heritage which are housed in spacious historic buildings. There is plenty of wide-open outdoor space to explore. Visitors are encouraged to pre-purchase admission tickets on receipt required for Museum entrance”. If visitors plan to pay admission at the Museum, credit or debit cards are preferred.

“The Museum has laid out guidelines for visitors on their website and asks everyone to review before visiting here.

“As mandated by Government, the Museum will reduce admissions to no more than 20% capacity and there will be limits to buildings, elevators, and exhibit spaces where appropriate.”
