Marine Science Day at VIMS
May 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
The Virginia Institute of Marine Science’s annual open house is a fun-filled and educational event for the whole family. Join us in Gloucester Point for exhibits, children’s activities, critter collection in the York River, lab tours, seafood cooking demonstrations, mini-lectures, and more. With this year’s theme of Search Out, attendees will learn about the ways VIMS scientists discover new solutions to help marine life and our marine environment. People of all ages can enter the Marine Life Costume Contest that occurs during Marine Science Day. This event is free, open to the public, and takes place rain or shine.

The first 100 people to register online will receive a free, Marine Science Day reusable shopping bag when they check-in on May 18th.
