Marquee Exhibit

Sea & Discover Zone

List of Exhibits

“Sea & Discover Zone” is a unique, permanent educational space created specifically for young children and their caregivers.  

Imaginatively designed, the new center offers three areas where young guests can play the role of marine explorers, conservationists and animal-care specialists:  

•  a beach zone, with books and comfortable reading nooks under a colorful mural, as well as an area for story times and live-animal presentations.  

•  a science lab with such tools as tweezers, simple microscopes, hand lenses and other tools to examine shells, feathers, fur and other “biofacts.”  

•  an ocean zone set up with objects for dramatic play, as well as a mock coral reef for seeking and finding animals. 

Please note: groups interested in visiting the Sea & Discover Zone are required to book the space ahead of time. Please contact our Reservations Department at (203) 852-0700 extension 2206 or email
