BUEI To Open ‘Bermuda Triangle’ Exhibit

February 10, 2018

On Thursday, February 15th, the new exhibit at BUEI — “Bermuda Triangle: Unlock the Secrets” — will officially open, with BUEI saying “what better place to discover the secrets of the Bermuda Triangle than in the country that shares its name.”

On hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony will be HE The Governor, Deputy Premier and Minister Roban, Nancy Gosling, on behalf of title sponsor Gosling’s, BUEI Director, Mel Ferson and Exhibit Project Manager, Lana Leksina.

Director, Mel Ferson, the driving force behind this exhibit, said, “In the past there wasn’t a single point where one could find out more about the infamous Bermuda Triangle, not even in Bermuda.

“That is not the case anymore. Bermuda Triangle: Unlock the Secrets is the place where people can find answers to one of the biggest mysteries of all time. In the perfect myth, facts are always mixed with fiction. BUEI has done historical and scientific research to separate the two.”

The exhibit highlights:

  • Emerging digital technologies that thrive on visitor participation
  • A 3D hologram of a hurricane from its formation to dissipation
  • A giant glass cylinder that demonstrates how a large release of methane gas can sink a ship
  • The most puzzling and intriguing Bermuda Triangle stories
  • A ‘Survive the Bermuda Triangle’ game
  • Find out the most common reason for maritime and aircraft accidents. Is it bad weather? Equipment failure? Alien interference? Or just human error?
  • A pop culture section featuring John Lennon, Barry Manilow, Fleetwood Mac and Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman, to name but a few

Exhibit Project Manager, Lana Leksina, said, “The exhibit offers something for all audiences – from sceptics to true enthusiasts of the paranormal. It is the ultimate destination for all things Triangle-related.”

“Regardless of the reasons behind the Bermuda Triangle phenomenon, this hugely popular myth is strongly embedded in international folklore. What better place to discover the secrets of the Bermuda Triangle than in the country that shares its name!”

More information about the Bermuda Triangle exhibit will be available at www.BermudaTriangle.bm when the site goes live on February 16th.

The Bermuda Triangle exhibit is possible thanks to generous title sponsorship from Gosling’s along with supporting sponsors Butterfield & Vallis, Elisabeth & Anne Kast Charitable Trust, Kurt & Jennifer Eve and Edmund Gibbons Limited.

BUEI’s education department will be offering free guided tours of the Bermuda Triangle exhibit to schools. Students will be invited on a mission to investigate disappearances and strange phenomena. They will discover the world of history, mythology, physics, chemistry, oceanography, meteorology, geography and human dynamics in a fun and interactive environment.

  2. Connected Community says:

    What an excellent idea – thank you BUEI and to the generous sponsors who made this all possible.

    I look forward to seeing this exhibit and directing those people who, when they here I am from Bermuda, bring up the triangle and ask if I am concerned about it. They can now assess the danger themselves and once their curiosity is ignited visit our island – again and again.

    This is the kind of subject matter we should be providing to our locals and visitors alike.
