Ocean Discovery Center


The Harbor Branch Ocean Discovery Center (ODC) is the public gateway to FAU's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. The ODC houses interactive exhibits, small aquaria, a video theater and other displays exploring the marine environment and depicting the research efforts of the Institute.

ODC exhibit content is developed in close coordination with the Harbor Branch project managers by a team of award-winning educators and media specialists.  Exhibit content is continually evolving to showcase the ongoing research and conservation efforts of Harbor Branch and to give visitors a close-up look at the emerging technologies used by the marine research community.

There is no charge for individual and family public visits to the ODC. For more information about the Ocean Discovery Center, or to inquire about scheduling group visits, please call 772-242-2293.
