Visitors to WHOI's Ocean Science Exhibit Center will learn about the Institution's ocean science research and the vessels and tools developed by WHOI engineers and scientists for use in that research.
Short videos provide an introduction to WHOI, show a day in the life of the deep submersible Alvin, and highlight the 1985-1986 discovery and exploration of the wreck of the Titanic. Visitors can step inside a full-size model of the inner sphere of Alvin and imagine life at the ocean floor while watching vivid footage taken at deep-sea hydrothermal vent sites.
Other exhibits and videos feature the life forms and natural processes of the deep sea. The Center does not have aformal fee but rather a suggested donation of $3 per person for those 10 years of age and older.
Limited Activities will be offered during these weekends but TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE WARM FALL WEATHER TO WALK THE CAPE COD CANAL OR VISIT THE CHRISTMAS TREE SHOPS ON THE CAPE. See office for directions and a list of LOCAL EVENTS which will be available for the month of September.
