World Oceans Day

June 8, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM EDT

Join The Mariners’ Museum and Park as it celebrates World Oceans Day on Saturday, June 8, 2019. Bring your family and friends, and join this growing global celebration!

Museum staff will be in the galleries discussing how technology has evolved to help us understand more about what lies beneath the ocean depths. Learn about sustainability and ways scientists, oceanographers, and even you can help protect the waters and life within. View objects from our collection that show methods used to travel underwater. Listen to conservators who will discuss use of SONAR and other ways of research, wreck sites and exploration in general.

On World Oceans Day, people around our blue planet celebrate and honor the ocean, which connects us all. Working together, we can and will protect our shared ocean.
