Ocean waves greet you as you step onto the beach of the new and fascinating Unseen Oceans exhibit currently at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. This special exhibition will be on display through April 9, 2023 and is FREE with general admission.
The kids dive right in while the adults dip their feet playing with the waves before immersing themselves. Soon, with just a bit of imagination, you are under the ocean going deeper and deeper as you proceed through the many attractions that educate you about the many mysterious facets of deep ocean exploration.
“Unseen Oceans,” launches you into a journey from the oceans’ unlit surfaces to their inky depths as you discover the latest ocean science and encounter the researchers and technologies that are revealing our blue planet as never before.
“We are losing biodiversity. Much of life on Earth lies in its oceans. It is good for people to be aware of the incredible biodiversity that exists in this under-explored region,” said Museum Senior Curator of Invertebrate Zoology Paula Cushing. “New species of marine organisms are being described every year thanks to the work of some of the scientists whose work forms the basis of this amazing exhibition.”
In “Unseen Oceans,” you will explore a series of media-rich galleries showcasing a range of marine environments and introducing the scientists who are using cutting-edge research tools and developing new methods to explore the oceans. How do blue whales spend their day? High-tech, removable tags on their backs provide the answer. What’s going on in the deep waters surrounding Hawai`i? Hint: Advanced sonar reveals a new island is set to emerge—in more than 100,000 years. How can we identify the best locations for marine protected areas? Fleets of small autonomous robots may offer important clues. “Unseen Oceans” offers answers to these exciting questions and highlights other lines of inquiry that ocean researchers have only recently uncovered.
“Unseen Oceans” is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York and is curated by John Sparks, curator in the American Museum of Natural History’s Department of Ichthyology in the Division of Vertebrate Zoology.
The exhibit is Free with general admission. No special or timed ticket required. General admission allows you to visit numerous other exhibits as well.
