Living Seashore earned Top Honors, AZA’s highest award for exhibit innovation and guest engagement.
Our newest exhibit, which has welcomed more than one million guests since opening in May 2015, celebrates the natural wonders of the mid-Atlantic’s coastal ecosystem. Living Seashore’s touchpools contain more than 5,000 gallons of salt water and are teeming with aquatic life, including Atlantic stingrays, horseshoe crabs and moon jellies.
The exhibit also features a replicated sandy dune and a digital multi-touch table where guests can learn more about objects that wash up on the beach and animals that live along the seashore. After exploring Living Seashore, guests leave with a new appreciation for the unique habitat the exhibit represents!
