Not much to see but if you're in Bermuda you might as well make the visit. Twenty minutes is probably all the time you'll need. If you are traveling with small children 8 years old and younger it will be exciting for them.

We stopped in here on our trip to Bermuda. Took the #11 bus from Hamilton which was quite easy. For the price of admission (only $10 for adults) you get admission to the zoo, aquarium, and natural history museum. The exhibits are nice. I was surprised at some of the zoo exhibits where animals (birds, lemurs, monkeys) are free to... More

The Bermuda Aquarium, Natural History Museum and Zoo is a must see for kids and adults. Very beautifully done aquarium, and the zoo part is a wonderful plus. They had a few interesting animals I have never seen in my entire life. Place is clean, well laid out, in great shape, and educational in a very vibrant and interesting way--... More

This is a modest, but very nicely done facility. It’s a combination aquarium and small zoo. I’ve been to many of both, and I thought the placards and information signs were particularly well done…they were informative and seemed to answer very natural (appropriate) questions. It’s easy to get to by bus (both the 10 and 11 buses go by there... More

You will not regret visiting this intimate aquarium, it gives you an opportunity to get quite up close and personal with the animals and marine life, I liked visiting the big scary eel, octopus, Galapagos tortoise and little monkeys that look like golden-lion tamarins

The BAMZ has a lot to offer at one spot. We were amazed at being able to walk through netted area with lemurs, monkeys and birds. We even saw a mermaid!

I know the official name shows that, but everyone just calls it "The Aquarium". Even the aquarium is pretty impressive. Lots and lots of small tanks showing different types of things, such as how fish can hide, or how they can defend themselves, as well as different habitats. There is also a very large tank that has one edge curving... More

While the kids were entertained, I found myself checking my watch quite often. The new aquatic exhibit was nice upon first sight but after spending a few minutes in it, I noticed that not much had really changed except for the tanks and lighting. When entering the museum part my children were immediately thrown into boredom and they forced me... More

We spent two hour here enjoying all the exhibits. Taking your time allows you to read all the information about the animals and fish. Also you get to see many free range animals sitting quietly in the undergrowth. Those who speed walk while talking loudly missed most of the animals. There is a little coffee bar nicely placed half way... More
