Top accolade for Bermuda museum

The National Museum in Dockyard has made the Traveller's Choice list of the top ten museums in the Caribbean for the second year in succession.

Last year the museum placed third in the list, while this year it came in sixth and attracted hundreds of glowing reviews on the TripAdvisor website.

The Masterworks Museum at the Botanical Gardens also made the top ten museums in the Caribbean this year placing fourth.

The National Museum's curator, Elena Strong, welcomed the news.

“The National Museum is delighted to be the recipient of the Travellers' Choice museum award for a second year running,” she said.

“It has been a challenging year with the closure of Commissioner's House due to the extensive roof damage caused by the hurricanes late last year.

“But, it is encouraging to know that our stunning site and other exhibits, such as Shipwreck Island, continue to command high ratings.

“We strive to be on next year's list. Congratulations to the other local institutions who have been similarly recognised.”

Elena Strong, of the National Museum
