Admission includes eight historic buildings such as old munitions warehouses and the newly restored Commissioner's House, the first prefabricated cast and wrought iron house in the world. Exhibitions include the Bermuda Slavery Exhibit, one devoted to the ancestry of the island's Portuguese community and other displays that highlight Bermuda's maritime history.
