Marine Science Center full of fun

PORT TOWNSEND MARINE SCIENCE CENTER

With exhibits on both the scenic pier and shoreline at Fort Worden’s expansive sandy beach, the Port Townsend Marine Science Center rewards residents and visitors alike with dynamic displays of intertidal plants and animals indigenous to the Salish Sea. The center, founded in 1982 as an educational and scientific organization, is devoted to inspiring conservation of the Salish Sea. The interactive natural history museum and hands-on aquarium feature countless animals, plants and exhibits to touch and discover, including colorful touch tanks filled with anemones, sea stars, urchins, hermit crabs and more. They also boast a hydrophone to listen to nearby whales, brand-new interactive

exhibits on glaciers and climate change, and one of only six fully articulated orca skeletons in the United States. Tiny plants and animals, known as plankton, are collected daily off the pier with the help of visitors, to be viewed under microscopes. Interactive oceanography-on-thedock activities are free and open to the public. Scheduled guided beach walks to nearby tide pools and live feeding of the animals in the marine exhibits are summer favorites for children and available with admission to the exhibits. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children and free for members. In the summer, the center is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except Tuesdays) and in the fall, winter and spring from noon to 5 p.m. Fridays through Sundays. For more information, visit ptmsc.org.
