Kachemak Bay: An Exploration of People and Place continues in the marine gallery, where marine subjects come to life.
The sea and its bounty greet you eye-to-eye as an octopus glides past. A sea star creeps over the edge of a rock, an anemone opens and closes, a sculpin forages for food. Other intertidal specimens in the aquaria invite further discovery. More than 75 species of fish, birds and mammals that live in and by the sea are found throughout the museum, including the rare Bering Sea Beaked Whale, Steller Sea Lion, Beluga Whale, and Sperm Whale.
(Following the Spring 2019 remodel, aquaria have not yet been restocked. Stay tuned!)
