Museums & Galleries

There are more forts per square mile in Bermuda than anywhere else in the world. Fort St. Catherine, a historic landmark, is a fine example of the forts built during the early settlement period. Perched atop a cliff, the stronghold remains perfectly intact, offering both an exciting look at the original structure and sweeping panoramas of the surrounding shores. Shingles outline the fringes of the fort, with turquoise waves lapping at the stones scattered around it. Inside, there are dioramas depicting Bermuda's history, as well as military exhibits featuring antique swords, muskets, and pistols. Visitors can tune in to the audio/visual presentation hosted at the top of the tower to learn more about methods of fortification when they visit. Also exciting is the replica of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom found within the site. Although tours of Fort St. Catherine are reserved for school groups, visitors are encouraged to explore the grand landmark and museum for a modest admission fee.
