St. George's Historical Society Museum, Printery, and Garden Review

Furnished to resemble its former incarnation as a private home, this typical Bermudian building reveals what life was like in the early 1700s. Along with period furnishings, such as a 1620 statehouse table, it has assorted documents and artifacts pertaining to the colonial days. But it's the re-created kitchen—complete with palmetto baskets and calabash dipping gourds—that really takes the cake. Downstairs the printery features a working replica of a Gutenberg-style press, as well as early editions of island newspapers. The beautiful cottage gardens behind the museum are also worth a visit.
