Our most interactive exhibit yet, Living Seashore features two touchpools and a variety of hands-on experiences, which give the public many unique opportunities to explore the Mid-Atlantic shoreline.

Not only will guests have the chance to touch Atlantic stingrays, clearnose skates, moon jellies and other animals; they’ll also discover the treasures of this Mid-Atlantic habitat that exist beyond the boardwalk—from shifting dunes and sandy beaches to the crashing waves of the shore.
