The National Museum of Bermuda is opening its doors for free to all Bermuda residents throughout February.

Residents will be admitted to the popular Dockyard centre with proof of residency such as a driver’s licence or utility bill.

The museum, which sits on a 16-acre property, holds more than 80,000 artefacts, a spokeswoman said.

Its collection covers topics including Bermuda’s cultural links with the West Indies and Azores, transatlantic slavery and slavery in Bermuda, Bermuda’s defence heritage, shipwrecks and early Bermuda settlement, as well as the building of Dockyard.

Also next month, Bermuda residents visiting the museum can enter a weekly raffle to win a free membership.

The museum is open daily from 10am to 5pm, with last admission at 4pm.

You must be registered or signed-in to post comment or to vote.
