Today: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Don't miss this special event hosted by Science Friday at The Maritime Aquarium in honor of Cephalopod Week! Join us for a pre-show meet and greet, where guests can enjoy appetizers and drinks in the company of Ira Flatow, Science Friday’s host and founder. Following the meet and greet, we’ll convene in the theater, where we’ll screen short science documentaries (plus, our new 4D film "Octopus: Blue Planet II 4D Experience!") and watch an interview hosted by Ira with two very special squid-y guests.
In-person experts include Barrett Christie, Director of Animal Husbandry at the Aquarium, who will tell us what it’s like to work with octopuses and write the go-to manual on cephalopod care, and Christopher Whalen, postdoctoral researcher at the American Museum of Natural History, who recently identified a new, 10-armed cephalopod in the fossil record. Come with your cuttle-y questions!
Please note: All guests age 5+ will be required to provide proof of vaccination (2 doses + booster, 2 weeks prior to event date) at the door to attend this event.
Tickets: $30 for general admission, $25 for CT Public and Maritime Aquarium members and $20 for children ages 3-12.
