The Estuarium Hall is currently under renovation and is closed to the public. It will re-open October 11, 2014.
Demolition is well underway, major component purchases are in progress, and concepts are transforming into text and graphics – we are ecstatic to have initiated this long overdue Estuarium renovation project! Our new aquarium exhibit is designed to reflect natural habitats surrounding Southern Marylanders. It will mirror adaptive strategies life forms use to cope with harsh estuarine existence. It will echo current teachings of regional scholars and researchers – that humans are affecting change in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. And it will embody the museum’s mission by immersing guests in a “what lies beneath the waves” environment, stimulating the imagination and creating an engaged learning experience.
