A very kid friendly, hands on exhibit, with excellent, friendly staff to answer questions. Excellent descriptions of what an estuary is, and why it is important to the health of the environment.

Don't be put off by the name. This is a great place for the family to visit for one of their many programs. I caught the one they do on seals.
