Explore our Marine and Natural History Exhibits

On the pier, our Marine Exhibit has touch pools and aquaria where you'll get to know the diverse fish and invertebrates living below the surface in Port Townsend Bay and Admiralty Inlet. In our Natural History Exhibit you can delve into its history—its ancient marine life and the forces that shaped its landscape. 

Visit our Marine Exhibit for a hands-on experience with local, live animals in aquariums and touch tanks. Next, venture to the Natural History Exhibit where scientific investigation and conservation are featured. Using interactive games and videos, learn about the orca named Hope, and the role that humans play in the Salish Sea ecosystem.

Be sure to visit our new exhibit, Learning from Orcas—the Story of Hope.
