The “Origins” area looks back in time when molten rock flowed on the earth and great glaciers sculpted the land. Ancient predators, mollusks and even fish with lungs are part of the display. While the “Shipwrecks Alive” dives into how sunken ships attract and become habitats for sea life. 5 different touch pools invite visitors to gently reach out and touch small sharks, horseshoe crabs, and even jellyfish.
