Seacoast Science Center


The Seacoast Science Center is a non-profit marine science education organization located within Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, New Hampshire. We provide educational experiences on behalf of New Hampshire State Parks and have been connecting people to the wonders of our coast since 1992. Our live animal exhibits feature the amazing creatures that live in the rapidly changing Gulf of Maine ecosystem. We educate to motivate. Because ocean health impacts our daily lives, our goal is to inspire people to make everyday choices that will have a positive impact on the health of the ocean.

Our Mission: To spark curiosity, enhance understanding, and inspire conservation of our Blue Planet.
Through programs, exhibits, and marine mammal rescue, we inform everyone, from toddlers to grandparents, about why a healthy ocean matters.

Our Vision: We envision an abundant, sustainable, healthy world ocean.
To achieve that end, we are building a blue community in which everyone is an ocean steward who cares for the future of the sea.
