Non-Living Exhibits

Ocean Science Outreach

Video kiosks, built into the blue technology booths at the Blue Ocean Cube, display information about the diversity of life at the ocean bottom, Harmful Algae Blooms, and the New Bedford Harbor Superfund Site cleanup. We are grateful to our partners, the UMass School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST), Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), respectively, for these informative videos.

Ocean Murals

Painted by renowned local artist Arthur Moniz, two magnificent murals embrace the ends of the Ocean Explorium. These murals depict the natural beauty of an aquatic habitat and the dynamic cultural beauty of New Bedford’s working waterfront.  Try to locate all the items in our mural-related Scavenger Hunt activities! Artist’s prints and note cards of these murals are available at our gift shop.
