Description:In addition to the Visitor's Center, there are various opportunities throughout the year for tours to learn more about our marine environment and current research at the Institute.

VIMS' annual Marine Science Day open house takes place on the third Saturday in May. This fun, educational event gives visitors an opportunity to examine high-tech science equipment, tour a laboratory, collect and observe aquatic animals, and discover the importance of wetlands in VIMS' Teaching Marsh. Cooking demonstrations, mini-lectures, and "hands-on" activities take place throughout the day, and a Children's Center provides lots of hands-on activities for the younger set.
