  • $15 per adult for non members. Great rainy day activity if you're visiting the island. Great for kids, they also host events and movies etc. There is a nice place for food downstairs, and a gift shop upstairs. Interesting information about environmental impact from plastic, Americas cup, Local wrecks and lots more.
  • Nice museum with excellent summer camps for kids.
  • Very interesting place. I always learn something knew when I visit.
  • Good educational visit for kids.
  • BUEI is a great local resource for learning about a range of things related to Bermuda's relationship with the ocean. Fun and interesting for both children and adults. It's also a popular place for school field trips.
