The Hamilton city hall also houses the Bermuda National Gallery and the Bermuda Society of Arts. The latter displays the work of local artists, and most items are for sale. When I was there works of a really fine photographer were on exhibit. Pictured below is a mosaic of the Somerset Bridge, the smallest working drawbridge in the world, just wide enough to let ships' masts through.

The Bermuda National Gallery had a tribute to the political cartoonist Peter Woolcott, including illustrations of nursery rhymes, The Wind in the Willows, and satirical looks at the "early days" of transportation and communication. I especially enjoyed the gallery of impressionist paintings of Bermuda scenes. They also display other works from their collection, such as the two paintings shown on the bottom of this page.
