Located across the street from The Maritime Inn, this small museum is in the Visitor Center in the historic home of the Skansie family. Our mission is to inspire stewardship for Puget Sound by providing learning opportunities about the environment.

Highlights include: getting to help feed the crabs and sea anemones in the touch tanks (around 3:00), viewing the underwater camera and the sand box. The sand box is designed to let people build mountains, valleys etc. Then you hold your hand over one spot for a minute and blue patches appear to indicate rain and to show which way the water would flow.

There are also microscopes available and skulls of various animals. Tours are free.
