Deep Blue Sea Weekend celebrated June 14 – 15

Help us celebrate the opening of our BLUE! exhibit and the Omnimax film, Great White Shark.

Explore the ocean from coral reefs to the ocean floor. Use enormous blue foam blocks to build mini-cities! Be an engineer as you tinker with small and medium-size blue blocks – fun for all ages! Enjoy hands-on activities – sift for shark teeth, create a Cartesian diver, and craft a bioluminescent jellyfish puppet!
