Living Seashore Construction Update!

We’re happy to report that in the few short months since our newest exhibit, Living Seashore, was announced, a lot of construction progress has been made!

Published January 14, 2015

Living Seashore is an interactive exhibit that gives guests the opportunity to explore the shore and touch the animals that live between the tides. Located on the third level of Blue Wonders, this new exhibit spans 2,700 square feet.
