Sink your teeth into an amazing "out-of-water" shark experience that’s fun for all ages! Making only its second stop in the United States, Planet Shark: Predator or Prey features explanations and examinations of almost every aspect of the shark. From evolution and biology to popular culture and the fin trade, this 12,000-square-foot five-gallery exhibition guides visitors through the murky myths and fascinating facts that have surrounded sharks for centuries.

One of nature’s oldest and most feared creatures, the shark also is one of the most misunderstood. Fishing pressure and media misrepresentation have put many species of this magnificent animal under serious threat of extinction. Planet Shark: Predator or Prey is a great educational step to help preserve these necessary apex predators. The exhibit ends September 16th.

Planet Shark: Just for Kids is an activity area within Planet Shark: Predator or Prey that engages children through imaginative hands-on interpretation areas, daily art murals, underwater-themed puzzles and more. A variety of activities designed for young ones will assist with making shark information accessible and non-scary.
