Several months ago the National Museum of Bermuda commissioned the creation of a fantastical new playground for children.  The playground was always intended to be the first part of a new interactive fun zone, the second phase of which - The Museum Playhouse - was recently completed.

One of the many historic stone buildings adjacent to the playground has been converted into an interactive playroom.  The focal point of the room consists of a three-dimensional sleeping sailor's head featuring a tactile rope beard on which children can learn to tie nautical knots.  Each of the fifteen displays is based on some aspect of local history and culture with the intention that children should have fun while learning.

The Playhouse was designed by Russell DeMoura and James Cooper and includes works commissioned from Emma Sloan and Sami Lill.
