Due to COVID-19, the Discovery Center is closed.
While in Woods Hole, drop by the WHOI Visitor Center to pick up maps, brochures about the Institution, or a copy of Oceanus magazine. Our staff and volunteers are ready to answer your questions and provide you with other resources about WHOI and the ocean. Summer walking tours are also available in July and August by reservation.
Street parking in the village of Woods Hole is very limited and metered. We strongly encourage summer visitors to park at the shopping malls and free municipal lots in Falmouth and ride the WHOOSH trolley to the village of Woods Hole. The trolley is operated by the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (800-352-7155) and charges minimal fees.
