I was at this location for a meeting in the upstairs meeting room but we were able to tour in the afternoon. Interesting history of diving and educational stations for kids and adults to enjoy. There is also a diving simulator.

We went here one day while we were in downtown Hamilton, Bermuda. It's about a 15 minute walk from the ferry. We learned a lot and the facility is very nice. The people who work there are very knowledgeable. Recommended!

Tremendously interesting place to visit which probably needs about two and a half hours to do it justice. Interactive exhibitions from early days underwater in diving bells to this year's Americas Cup along with the world's largest shell collection. Good shop and easy walk from...More

There is a lot to see for children and adults. There are twelve rooms that deal with the sea and Bermuda's part from wreck recovery to the America's Cup. Take the time to visit the museum. The entry cost is nominal.

One of the best maritime related exhibits my wife and I have experienced. Though the Institute is not overly large, the exhibits are varied, informative, and there are several that feature an audio/visual component. I especially enjoyed the virtual reality session associated the America's Cup...More
