The Bermuda National Library is a definite institution: It's been serving the literary appetites of Bermudians since 1839. The library houses better than 115,000 volumes--there were a mere couple hundred back in the early days--and a comprehensive digital collection.

If you want to dig more deeply into island history and culture during your visit, the National Library makes an excellent stopover; its treasures include vintage maps of Bermuda as well as rare manuscripts from North America's colonial period. The historic two-story building it resides in, meanwhile, which fronts Queen Elizabeth Park, was once the home of William Perot and his family.
