The Port Townsend Marine Science Center, a 501 (c) (3), is an educational and scientific non-profit organization devoted to understanding and conserving our marine and shoreline environment.
It was founded in 1982 by two teachers and was initially run entirely by volunteers. Over the years it has continued to grow in a steady, thoughtful manner, and its volunteers, now numbering more than 100, are still integrally involved in the organization. Throughout its development it has remained committed to its mission of engaging people of all ages in understanding and protecting the marine environment.
The Port Townsend Marine Science Center maintains a Marine Exhibit, which includes touch tanks and aquariums, as well as a Natural History Exhibit, featuring a fully articulated orca skeleton. The Marine Exhibit is open to the public in spring, summer & fall to school groups, youth groups and the general public. In the winter, we are closed to the public except by special arrangement. The Natural History Exhibit is open year round to the public..
PTMSC offers education programs for youth and adults, and is host to other events such as workshops, beach walks, nature cruises, and field trips.
