All Ages

Celebrate Ocean Discovery Month this summer at the Exploratorium, and explore your connection to the ocean through daily hands-on activities, films, ship tours, conversations, interactive exhibits, and more.

Visitors of all ages can make ocean discoveries all month from inside and outside our waterfront museum location.

Ocean Discovery Month features our partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which will be docking a research vessel at the Exploratorium’s Pier 17 in August, as well as scientists from UC Davis and UC Santa Cruz who monitor conditions from our location and study the connection between the ocean and Bay through the Exploratorium’s Wired Pier environmental observing program.
