Don’t wait for the fireworks—come to the Port Townsend Marine Science Center on the 4th of July from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and enjoy free admission to both exhibits.
“We welcome families to come and interact with our marine animals in the Marine Exhibit on the pier and enjoy the hands-on activities in the Natural History Exhibit, all free of charge on the Fourth of July,” said Anne Murphy, Executive Director for the PTMSC. “We’ll also be offering the ancient art of Gyotaku, better known as fish printing.”
Fish printing is fun for all ages. You can buy a shirt or paper, or bring your own to use as your “canvas.” PTMSC volunteers will be on-hand to offer creative assistance with any designs you may have in mind. Although guests are encouraged to buy a Discover Parking pass, they don’t need a pass to visit PTMSC buildings.
