Learn about how prominent Bermudians lived their lives on the island during the turn of the 19th century when you visit the Tucker House Museum. The house was built in the 1750s, but it wasn't until 1175 that the Henry Tucker (President of the Governor's Council) and his family took up residence. They remained in the home until 1809. Now, visitors can tour the home, which retains much of their original furniture, artwork, and household items. Guided tours are available.
