Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo (BAMZ) is a little gem that has been part of life in Bermuda since 1926, and is now one of the world’s oldest aquariums. The aquarium features fish, local and not, exhibits, outdoor exhibits with ancient sea turtles (local volunteers sign up to give turtles regular scrub baths!), sea lions (check out feeding times), and more.
Especially impressive is the 140,000-gallon North Rock tank, which really gives visitors an idea of the local reef systems.
There is also an aviary on site, and the new Madagascar exhibit, with lemurs and other animals from that island ecosystem.
With its relatively small front entrance, once inside, BAMZ goes on for a while, and continues to impress visitors. It is one of THE places to be on any day, but especially on rainy days, the parking lot is crowded.
(Joining the zoo as a member you become a member of the worldwide Association of Zoos and Aquariums and can enter associated zoos and aquariums around the world free! By the same token, if you are a member of your own local zoo/aquarium, inquire about using your member card to enter BAMZ.)
