Fun afternoon out, learning about Bermuda and their sea life. Information on shipwrecks, and the recently added Bermuda Triangle exhibition. Aimed at younger children, but equally fun for adults too, particularly enjoyed the virtual reality in the America's Cup exhibition.

Went here during storms and experience exceeded our expectations. Learned a lot and especially enjoyed the shell room (wife) and America’s Cup exhibit (husband). The first room about underwater exploration is fascinating. Wish our grandchildren were with us as this is very child friendly!

I keep going back to BUEI with anyone new to Bermuda. It’s the ONLY place to see the model of the seamount that Bermuda sits on - that by itself is pretty amazing! I’ve added a photo for a traveler who asked about that. You...More
