Botanical Gardens Review
Established in 1898, the Botanical Gardens are filled with exotic subtropical plants, flowers, and trees. The 36-acre property features a miniature forest, an aviary, a hibiscus garden with more than 150 species, and collections of orchids, cacti, fruits, and ferns. In addition to these must-see sights is an intriguing must-smell one: the Garden for the Sightless. Designed primarily for the blind, it has fragrant plants (like geranium, lemon, lavender, and spices), plus Braille signage. Weather permitting, free 60- to 90-minute guided tours of the Botanical Gardens begin from theVisitor's Information Centre at 10:30 every day.
Camden. This gracious white house within the gardens is the official residence of Bermuda's premier. Tours of the interior are given Tuesday and Friday noon to 2, except when official functions are scheduled. 441/236–5732.
Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art. Behind Camden sits the island's first purpose-built state-of-the-art museum: the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art. Like its former incarnation (the Masterworks Foundation), the new venue's theme is "Bermuda through the Eyes of Artists," and the soaring main gallery is devoted to island-inspired works by internationally renowned figures such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Andrew Wyeth, and Winslow Homer. Two other galleries display (and sell) paintings by native-born artists. 441/236–2950. www.bermudamasterworks.com. $5. Mon.–Sat. 10–4.
