The Bermuda National Gallery has an interesting permanent collection and the temporary exhibitions can also be fun. Well worth a visit.

Support local art and artists! Visit the gallery and enjoy some quiet time away from the tourist areas of Hamilton. There are some interesting works here, and two different areas to visit. Clean bathrooms also available!
