Bermuda Historical Society Museum


In the shade of an giant rubber tree, this appealing Georgia building is typical of Hamilton's 19th-century architecture and houses intricately carved cedar furniture from the same era. Other treasures include Hogge money – Bermuda's first currency – and oil paintings of the island's 'Who's Who,' including the colony's founder, George Somers. This volunteer-run museum is sometimes inexplicably closed.
