Ocean Discovery Visitor's Center

The Ocean Discovery Visitor's Center is closed and will reopen to the public on January 3, 2017. Mission Ocean Discovery public outreach programming conducted through the Ocean Discovery Visitor’s Center will also reconvene in January 2017.

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

ODVC 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 ODVC. For more information about the Ocean Discovery Visitor's Center, or to inquire about scheduling group visits, please call 772-242-2293.
