The National Museum of Bermuda [NMB] has expanded their online gift shop, introducing a new ornament and jigsaw puzzle in addition to reproductions of historic prints and maps, NMB Press publications and memberships.

A spokesperson said, “Shop proceeds directly support all the work of the Museum. NMB’s famous mouse-catcher, Bastion the cat, joins beloved sheep and King Neptune tree ornaments, all made by local artisan Lama Handmade BDA. All large ornaments sell for $25 and mini sheep ornaments are $15.

“A jigsaw puzzle featuring a watercolour by Dr. Johnson Savage, Royal Artillery, is a new addition to the shop this year, and there is a limited supply of another jigsaw puzzle featuring an Emancipation Day vignette from NMB’s Hall of History by Graham Foster. Puzzles are $50 each and designed by SJD World.

“Map enthusiasts will love the colour print of the first ever hydrographic survey of Bermuda by Commander Thomas Hurd RN, 1788-1797 [prices start at $150]. And, prints from Dr. Savage’s album of original watercolour paintings and sketches of Bermuda between 1833-36 are selling for $75. Maps and prints are produced locally by Loris Toppan at ESC Printing.
