Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute reviews
The museum is interesting. Lots of information. Many electronic 'gadgets' do not work. Shell room is beautiful. It's worth an hour or two. more »
this was a well presented , informative and interesting museum. A great place for all ages, we spent a couple of hours there. We enjoyed the interactive exhibits a real must , come rain or shine. more »
Great place for Kids to Understand Underwater life :) Staff is amazing! I believe BUEI offers one of the best event rental spaces with class. We have been coming here for years for events and must say we are delighted every time. Staff is never hesitant to stay an extra hour or 2 in fact so that you can set up and tear down conveniently..
Great facility. Lots to see and lots of information provided in different methods. Both my child and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Great location, an easy stroll from the ferry terminal. The selfie station was super fun, as was the shark cage.
