CURB Visit to Casemates and Maritime Museum

March 9, 2010

Dear CURB Central Council, General Members and Working Group Members,

How are Bermuda’s Museums responding to the challenge of being more inclusive in their exhibits?  Be a part of CURB’s visit to the west end on Saturday 27th March 2010 to find out!

Members of the Central Council, General Members and Working Group members are invited to participate in a CURB visit to Casemates and the Maritime Museum on Saturday 27th March 2010.  Admittance will be FREE and there is also FREE travel on the Dockyard Ferry that day IF you are wearing a CURB wristband.  Please see information below for further details.

CASEMATES 12:45 p.m. – Due to restrictions on group size only CURB Central Council, general members and working group members are invited to a tour of the renovations of Casemates by Dr. Edward Harris.  The work that has been completed by volunteers at Casemates is incredible.  Please RSVP to this email if you are planning on attending the Casemates part of the tour so I can give an indication of numbers to Dr. Harris.

BERMUDA MARITIME MUSEUM 2:30 p.m. – The visit to the Maritime Museum is open to all CURB members and supporters, and we will be meeting at the gates to the museum at 2:30 p.m.   Thanks to Dr. Harris and the BMM for allowing CURB members and supporters FREE admission.  CURB members and supporters must wear a CURB wristband to gain free admission. This part of the visit will not be guided, however handouts will be prepared by the BMM & CURB for distribution to attendees .  Please let us know if you can volunteer to hand out the CURB wristbands at the entrance to the Museum to anyone who arrives by bus or car from 2:15 – 2:45 p.m.

FERRY LOGISTICS – Ferries run on the hour every hour from Hamilton to Dockyard till 5 p.m. and then on the half hour every hour until 5:30 p.m. from Dockyard to Hamilton.   In order to board the ferry for free, all CURB members and supporters must wear a CURB wristbandSo we are seeking volunteers to man 3 shifts at the Hamilton Ferry Terminal to hand out wristbands for the 12 p.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. ferries. Please be there 20 minutes before the ferry departs.  Note that if you are planning on using the ferry to get to Dockyard for the visit, you could hand out wristbands just for that one shift.

FOLLOW UP REPORTING – CURB members and supporters are asked to email us at to provide their impressions on how they feel the Musuem is rising to the challenge of being more inclusive in their exhibits.

Please do not forward this email to friends, family and colleagues as the CASEMATES section of the visit is only open to CC members, general members and working group members.  Another email will be going out to Supporters inviting them to the Bermuda Maritime Museum.
