Seymour Center Reopens Indoors!

Nineteen months after COVID forced its doors to close, the Seymour Center is preparing for a triumphal return. Beginning October, guests will once again be welcomed back inside to visit the Center’s interactive exhibits, touch live sharks, and enjoy a brand new display featuring stunning photographs of marine life taken by UC Santa Cruz scientists in the field. 

The new exhibit, entitled “Photos from the Field: Through the Eyes of our Scientists”, reflects a focus on cutting-edge scientific research and how it shapes ocean and coastal conservation efforts.

Join us to celebrate this tremendous milestone during our members-only weekends, October 1–3 and October 8–10, 10 AM–4 PM.

We'll reopen to all visitors on Friday, October 15.

Learn what to expect, including new operating hours and COVID-19 safety modifications. Reservations are not required.
