Narrated city train tour launches

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute is offering train tours to the museum from Hamilton city centre.

Visitors can visit BUEI following a 35-minute narrated tour which includes discounts and free offerings at some of Hamilton's shops.

Director of BUEI Mel Ferson said: “Guests can now experience ‘the coolest little museum in the world' along with the sights and history of Hamilton and a chance to shop in our Hamilton stores with discounts and special coupons.

“BUEI has the perfect location just outside of Hamilton but on some days it is just too hot for visitors to walk from town and they don't always want to take a taxi with it being so close. Having the train has helped to solve some of these challenges and allows an expanded product offering to our visitors and residents — who doesn't love riding a train?”

The train and museum package is $39 for adults, $35 for seniors and $25 for children, with no charge for children younger than 6. Guests can also enjoy just the narrated Hamilton tour without the museum.

For BUEI members, the cost is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $10 for children older than 6. For non-members the price is $24 for adults, $20 for seniors and $15 for children older than 6.

The train departs the Hamilton ferry terminal Monday to Friday, every hour from 10am to 3pm. The train also departs BUEI, starting at 10.25am and runs every hour.

BUEI will also be using the train during the winter months to take students to the museum to experience the America's Cup exhibit and Living with the Ocean exhibit, for free, along with other education classes and programmes.

For more information on BUEI's school tours call 294-0221 or e-mail education@buei.bm The train can also be booked for private events and birthday parties. For more information call 294-0204 or e-mail giftshop@buei.bm
