National Trust Museum, St. George's
Tel: 441 297 1423
Concierge.com's insider take:
Built around 1700 and originally known as one of Bermuda's first governor's houses, this museum is a time capsule of the turbulent years of the American Civil War from a Bermudian perspective (the British used Bermuda as a waypoint for smuggling guns to Confederate forces, in exchange for cotton). On display are documents, maps, ship models, and even photographs, plus a section on the construction and role of St. George's during the divisive years.
Closed Sundays; closed and Mondays and Tuesdays November to March.
