Stop by for a quick visit. They need to the money to expand the exhibits (and get a larger sign so you can find it). Intersting for younger kids.

Though not large there are excellent displays about sharks and their place in the environment. It was fascinating to see how they can identify which shark is which and how they track them. There were activities for the kids like looking through sand for shark...More

This place was really great. Everything was really interesting and the volunteers were very helpful and knowledgeable. However, it’s only one room of displays and then a short virtual reality experience, so don’t plan your day around it!
