Seacoast Science Center

570 Ocean Blvd, Rye, NH 03870 - United States





The Seacoast Science Center is a non-profit marine science education organization located within Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, New Hampshire. Ocean education is what we do. We use hands-on programs and exhibits teach toddlers to grandparents that what we do every day has an impact on the health of the ocean and that ocean health impacts our daily lives. A healthy ocean drives our quality of life today and will for future generations.

Please note: This ticket does not include the fee to park in Odiorne Point State Park. Adults: $4 and Children (6-11): $2


We offer hands on interactive exhibits about the fisheries, marine debris, water as our lifeblood. We have a tidepool touch tank and many aquaria where you can see marine animals native to the Gulf of Maine. Our whale exhibit features 3 skeletons and interactive exhibits about whale behavior and adaptation. Our Discovery Dock offers a place for the little ones to immerse themselves in a mock fishing experience with fishing gear, a lobster boat and space for measuring and selling their catch for the day.
