Welcome to Gloucester’s newest immersive marine science experience! The Maritime Science Education Center at Maritime Gloucester on the Harbor Loop will be unveiled to the public this weekend and you’re going to want to put it on your calendar, especially for the children in your lives. Three new zones will be featured at this opening including the Plankton Lab, Exploration Station and the Impact Zone. Each is sparkling and newly renovated and features the work of artist Brian Murphy. Believe me when I tell you it’s stunning in its thoughtful design and visual appeal.
Members Only tours will be offered starting tomorrow (timed tickets required) Thursday Jan 26 and the ribbon cutting is scheduled for Fri Jan 27 at 3:30 PM. Saturday and Sunday will be open to all. Timed tickets are required and are available at this link with further information. Touch tanks, exhibits, aquariums and more! There’s something cool everywhere you look. You do not want to miss this!
