Our Puget Sound
Captain a two-story cargo ship and then explore Puget Sound sea life up close as you crawl through the hull. Float your own boat, experiment with an 8-ft Ballcano Vortex, and examine specimens at the Puget Sound Science Table.
Explore soft and safe exhibits like the Oyster Shell, Baby Beach and the Nest Climber. Or experience tactile play with the Dino Activity Boat, the Light Table, the Salmon Maze and the Paint Wall.
