During times when the Ocean Science Exhibit Center is closed to the public, we encourage the WHOI staff to use the Center as much as possible. Groups have used the Center for evening receptions and have held meetings in the Center auditorium during the off-season. We are happy to work with you to accommodate your needs. Contact Kathy Patterson (firstname.lastname@example.org) at ext. 2700.
Visitors to the Ocean Science Exhibit Center at WHOI 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. Visitors will also find WHOI merchandise in the Gift Shop located in the Center.
