Your donations help support our outreach, exhibits, and education efforts in our local community and beyond. We would like to invite you to be part of the Museum Family and Surface Support Team. Your visits, memberships, and contributions help us care for everything from the smallest of artifacts like the Venetian trade beads to the largest diving machines, as well as working to preserve the rich history of “the quest to explore under the sea” and the Bauer Diving History Research Library. In the upcoming months, Museum in Motion will be focusing on our Featured Exhibit, Aquanauts to Astronauts, May 20 through December 31, 2023.
