The Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo [BAMZ] will be re-opening to the public on Monday, 6th July, after having been closed to the public since 15th March, 2020.
A spokesperson said, “BAMZ will re-open the facility in two phases – starting with the Aquarium Hall, Museum and Gardens on Monday, 6th July – with the zoo portion of the facility set to open on Monday, 13th July.
“First entry will be at 10am, with the last admission at 4pm. While walk-in customers are welcome, there could be long wait times. This can prove frustrating, especially for young children. To reduce the wait time and in order to manage the number of guests – following Ministry of Health COVID-19 mitigation protocols – members of the public should make an appointment online at: here.
“Visitors to BAMZ, except for young children under the age of two, are required to wear face masks while indoors, in covered areas and when in animal exhibits.
“Visitors should disinfect their hands before coming onto the facility and observe physical distancing at all times.
“Requirements may change based on guidance from the Government of Bermuda, so visitors are urged to plan ahead – but all protocols will be posted at the front entrance.”
“After an unprecedented 113 days of being closed, we are very happy to re-open the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo to the public,” said Minister of Home Affairs Walter Roban.
“Thank you to everyone who has been doing their part to stay safe during this time. I would also like to recognise the dedication of BAMZ staff, who continued to care for all the animals in the facility while it was closed to the public. We know many residents have been looking forward to this re-opening announcement for a while – and I’m sure the staff and animals will be happy to see you again.”
