Ocean Hall is one of many outstanding exhibits and is one of my favorites. You can enter the hall and see life size replicas of large sea creatures adorning the many cases and walls. You really need to spend a few hours to visit every display.
There are numerous interactive displays, movies, and fixed exhibits that will make you say “Wow!” while viewing. Since I love whales I was particularly fascinated by the 45 foot long model of a right whale.
You are sure to learn something about the ocean and how we explore the underwater world. Even if you don’t read any displays or watch any movies you will be impressed by the scale of the exhibits by simply walking through Ocean Hall.
Ocean Hall is located behind the rotunda housing a large elephant. After viewing Ocean Hall you will want to see the many other interesting exhibits including the fascinating and mysterious Hope Diamond.
