An underwater world with life-sized marine mammals, a kelp forest, the intriguing possibilities of algae and an operational monitoring buoy are some of the things people will get to explore at our new Cawthron exhibition.
We have teamed up with the Cawthron Institute to help mark their centenary. Together we have created ‘Our Science, Our Future – 100 years of Cawthron’.
The exhibition features Cawthron’s research in aquaculture, seafood safety, algae and bioactives, freshwater and ocean health. It also demonstrates Cawthron’s special ongoing connection to the community through its education and philanthropic work which was all part of Thomas Cawthron’s original vision.
For the duration of the exhibition Cawthron Institute will be scheduling a number of science talks. The first one is on Saturday 29 May at 1:30pm. For more information click here to check out our website.
The Museum is open 10am – 5pm Monday – Friday and 10am – 4:30pm on weekends and public holidays.
