Plan Your Visit
Check out our latest review from Tripadvisor: “We had a Groupon, but this museum really was worth paying full price. Our group included 4 adults and 3 kids, ages 10, 5 and 3. A good time was had by all! I was so impressed by this small museum — from the employees who greeted us at the door to the employees who remembered the kids’ names upon our departure and took the time to say goodbye. The focus here is on education and cool hands-on activities, wherever possible. All staff were knowledgeable and clearly showed their passion for the ocean and its inhabitants. They were also great with kids, who got to hold shellfish and “pet” sting rays and small sharks.“ check our schedule
