    News and Notes from the Seacoast Science Center           June 26, 2020

    Exciting News!
    We are ready to welcome you back!

    We're opening for public visits on weekends, starting July 4th!
    Reservations to visit SSC are strongly encouraged.
    Reservations are required to enter OPSP.

    During the past few months while we’ve been closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our team has been working hard in preparation to welcome you back. We’ve made modifications throughout the building and to our exhibits, and have new safety protocols in place that follow and exceed the guidelines of the State and CDC. Watch this brief video to learn about our new reservation system, why we will only be open to visitors on weekends this summer, and how your visit will look a little different when you return.

    Thank you for sticking by us during these challenging times and for helping us keep our community safe. We look forward to sharing new ways of connecting you to nature and seeing you soon.
