Milestone Events at the Ocean Explorium


The Ocean Explorium is the newest venue on the SouthCoast for events.  From forums, strolling cocktail parties, and formal business meetings, to holiday events, Bar Mitzvahs, or anniversary celebrations, the Ocean Explorium is the perfect setting that will make a lasting impression on your attendees.

Our Great Hall exhibit space, in the marble-lined lobby of the former New Bedford Institution for Savings bank, is an elegant setting for ceremonies, cocktail parties and small dinners. The grand scale and architectural appointments lend the room an old-world air, while the various exhibits add color, motion and life!

The Education Center is a large space that can be configured for all occasions: trade shows, business forums, administrative retreats, presentations. It is fully equipped to meet any audio-visual needs, with a projector and screen, podium, microphone and speakers. Furnishings can be arranged to your specifications, and the room can be divided with a sound-dampening screen.
