Founded in 1926, the government-owned and operated Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo is one of the world's oldest aquariums. The facility offers a variety of activities to engage visitors, such as animal feedings, arts and crafts, animal story time and even guided snorkeling expeditions. The 7-acre complex is home to more than 200 species of fish and marine invertebrates and 300 birds, reptiles and mammals.
