WHOI Staff are welcome to schedule the use of the Ocean Science Center for group visits by contacting Kathy Patterson. 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 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 a formal fee but rather a suggested donation of $2 per person for those 10 years of age and older. We also ask that groups of 10 or more people call for a reservation at (508) 289-2663.
