This is a museum that was designed by Steven Holls and opened in June 2011. It is an award winning design that got rewarded in 2005. The theme of this museum is “Under the Sky” and “Under the Sea”. The roof is uniquely curved in a way that also shapes the space of the public plaza. It tilts down towards the horizon of the ocean. The building houses galleries, an auditorium, a restaurant, a cafeteria and administrative offices.

  • Some great activities such as 5d movies and virtual reality surfing and diving amongst sharks. A bit of a wait though , even if not really packed. A good day out on a raining day.

  • Amazing VR experiences! really enjoyed the visit and the kids loved it too!

  • This museum seems well-suited for people with families or for the young at heart. There are lots of interactive displays for all. They even have a 4d theater and virtual reality surfing. For me, it was the first time I've even worn VR goggles, and it was well worth the existence. Plus, you can get a package rate for Ocean City and the Aquarium which would make for a really fun weekend trip.

  • If you're looking for a bowl to skate, it's pretty bad. The bowl is tilted and the coping is pretty bad. You could try to drop in on the walls, but it's really sketchy regarding the rocks Pretty cool visual spot though.

  • Loads of interactive exhibits for the kids, including some virtual deep sea diving and surfing. Worth the admission.
