New Exhibits Coming Soon!
Kelp Forest Exhibit
The Waterworks exhibit will be closed Feb. 25-28, as we transform the water play area into an imaginative undersea environment, with shimmery light peeking through a kelp forest, and your favorite ocean animals swimming overhead. Look for scuba divers and submarines in the water tables along with ocean friends, like star fish and anemones.

Your tax-deductible donations are welcome to bring the exhibit to life!
