Maritime Museum - Dockyard, Bermuda: 17 reviews and 48 photos
In 1995, I figured that a museum would be a good place to go if it was rainy. I didn't realize that all the buildings weren't connected in one big Museum building. We still had fun, dashing from building to building in the rain or emulating the ducks. I enjoyed seeing the features of the building where they stored the munitions.
The Royal Naval Dockyard was once the largest naval base in the Western Atlantic. The breakwaters, wharves, boat slips, barracks and keep were constructed just before the 1812 war. The Keep was built with walls 20 feet wide, and visitors can enter after crossing a concrete drawbridge over the surrounding moat.
Of course this was off limits when we were here in 1963.
In 2004, we mainly concentrated on the Commissioner's House was not open when we were here in 1995. All the pictures except the one of the entrance were taken in 2004
