    Fun aquarium
    Great place on a rainy day or for families. Lots of aquariums with fish local to Bermuda, huge green turtles, seals, small zoo and small history museum that focuses on marine and plant life. If you buy year pass it’s tax deductible and you get discounts on other tours. Check for feeding times of turtles and seals and other animals

    Great family attraction at interactive zoo and aquarium.
    For a small island nation, this is a very nice aquarium and zoo. Lots of diversity from animals near and far. Exhibits are well done to help you understand what you’re seeing. Some aquarium tanks have lost some animals they have labeled. They should do an update. Great place for kids to wander and get close to animals in the Zoo.

    Worth a visit!
    We’ve been to Bermuda numerous times but never made it to the aquarium & zoo. It’s small but nice. I loved all of the beautiful fish in the aquariums. The flick of flamingos was also a favorite. Definitely worth a visit. We took the bus from Hamilton, it stops right in front.

    Worth the low-cost
    My husband and I took the bus from Hamilton to the Aquarium. The bus stop is directly in front of the building and taxis are out front as well. Admission was $10/per person which was fantastic. It is a small aquarium and small zoo, however, for $10 it was perfectly priced. Be warned: some animals are not behind cages, but roam close to people. My husband loved this--I did not.

    Interesting Place
    We stopped on the way to the airport and spent an hour looking at the fish and animals. Loved seeing the tropical fish, many that we'd already spotted during our trip but didn't know what they were. Parrot fish, trunkfish, squirrelfish, etc. Children appeared to be having a blast. It's a small zoo and aquarium, but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    A grand day out!
    We took the bus from Hamilton to the Aquarium. It was about 15 minutes. We spent a lovely day exploring the Aquarium and the Zoo! We started our day having lunch by the water in their adorable cafe. We caught the seal show and had a lovely chat with the staff who answered all our questions about the aquatic life they care for. The tanks are colorful and well kept and we particularly enjoyed seeing the large turtles and feeding the seals. We also had a chance to get fairly close to some lemurs which is an experience I will not soon forget! There were a number of camp groups there and seeing the kids faces light up at the edge of the large tanks was a highlight of the day. If you are looking for a break from the heat, this was a grand day out.

    Informative, Simple, and Nice
    We ventured from our Cruise port via bus to the location. After researching the cruise options we found it would be much more affordable if we went on our own since the cost to enter was just $10 per adult. With day passes we could go and return on our own schedule. Family friendly and very informative about the ecosystem of Bermuda and the issues that have been and are on going. Little monkeys are walking around freely and other animals were encaged. Small play park was available on the grounds. They have definitely made great use of their space. Although we did not find anything extraordinary we definitely enjoyed it.

We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the aquarium and zoo. The zoo is really well organized. I saw some animals that I never get to see back in Portugal. One of the zoo workers called Nesta (like Bob Marley) was so helpful. He saw us looking at the seals and approached us voluntarily and gave us the most wonderful details about the seals and their history. Thank so much Nesta! You made my day!

Unfortunately the zoo area was closed due to covid, but the aquarium and museum were still open.
The aquarium was great, lots of different fish and sea life - and the museum was very informative.
The place was kept very clean and the team there were friendly.
I can imagine this place is even better with everything open, but was still great as is! Worth a visit for sure!

Very cute place. Sea Turtles out front. 40-50 tanks inside. Clean and enjoyable. Zoo part is cute with interesting animals. Museum is one room but interesting. $15 admission is well worth it.

The Aquarium section is gorgeous, with many interesting sea creatures that you would not normally see if out on the reef. The zoo section is set up as a walk-through style, so you are in the enclosures with many of the animals. Very cool! Wish it was bigger!

The best part is the natural history museum -- great overview of the past and very interesting to browse. The displays of fish in the surrounding ocean are very helpful. I found the 'zoo' part to not be as great but that wasn't unexpected on a small island. The bus stops right outside the museum too, which is very convenient.

Plan to be here for about 2.5 - 3.5 hours with small children. Great aquatic exhibit that is easy to self navigate with a zoo and museum attached. Its a walking experience and very engaged, yet small. We enjoyed ourselves but did get rained out, so did not experience all of the exhibits and museum, but would definitely return.

Another recommendation from a friend and Trip Advisor. This aquarium doesn’t look much fro the outside but is well worth a visit. Nicely laid out and lots of lovely fish to look at. There is also a small playground should you have little ones. The enclosure for the American alligator was a little small I thought but other than that it was a pleasure to wander round. They have 3 Harbour seals who were being fed whilst we were there and the keeper was very knowledgeable and friendly. She explained how they got there and that they were sisters aged over 30 years. They looked well cared for.
Very enjoyable trip.
