Things to Do at the Marine Science Center

A visit to New Smyrna Beach isn't complete without a session at the Marine Science Center. This attraction is particularly popular with families. At the Marine Science Center, you will find so many different things to discover and see. One of the most popular facilities is the sea turtle hospital. Guests at the marine science center can check out the eight turtle hospital pools and learn more about sea turtle rehabilitation.

Other interesting facilities and areas to explore include the bird boardwalk, the classroom lab, the many educational displays and aquarium exhibits, and the touch pool. We love the bird boardwalk because you can have an up-close and personal encounter with the many bird ambassadors located in the marine science center. Popular birds include the bald eagle, the barred owl, and the red-shouldered hawk.

It's one of the most affordable attractions to visit with admission costing $5 for adults, $2 for youth (aged 3 - 12), and free for anyone aged 2 or younger. There's also a unique gift shop where you can buy plenty of cute and interesting gifts and souvenirs.
