|About these ratings|
The Bermuda Maritime Museum chronicles the island's history with several exhibits on slavery, immigration and tourism. Located on the ground of the Keep fortress in the Royal Naval Dockyard, the museum also recounts Bermuda's naval heritage.
Unless you're really into history or museums you probably need less than an hour to view all of Bermuda's artifacts. Devote most of your time to the adjacent Dolphin Quest, an interactive water program in the Keep Pond. Adults and children ages five or older can play with and swim alongside the Atlantic bottlenose dolphins that live at the museum. Travelers say the paltry cost of entering the museum is worth it just to observe the dolphin exhibit, but you'll have to pay an additional (and lofty) fee if you want to participate in the program.
The Bermuda Maritime Museum is open every day until about 4 p.m. You should visit the museum's website if you'd like more information on pricing, or to learn details of the Dolphin Quest exhibit.
