Towering over the entrance to the Dockyard, this limestone edifice used to be Bermuda's prison until the early '90s. The prison was originally a military barracks for the Royal Marines, built in the 1830s; convicts were shipped here from Britain to work and lived in squalid conditions aboard prison ships. The National Museum of Bermuda is currently renovating the building to use for exhibitions in the future.
