Annual Open House

Bigelow Laboratory scientists explore environments all over the world, and they bring all they learn back to our state-of-the-art facility in East Boothbay, Maine

Each July, we invite the public to visit our laboratory and hear first-hand from the researchers conducting our bold ocean science. Our staff lead a wide range of scientific demonstrations and activities for visitors of all ages. Visitors can meet some of the ocean’s most important organisms, see autonomous gliders that travel across the Atlantic Ocean, and learn how scientists are working to improve the future for the planet and all of us that call it home.

This free event is open to the public, and we'll add more details about our 2024 open house when they become available.
