The Oceanographic Museum Celebrates Spring – Programme of Activities from 11 April to 10 May 2015

The Oceanographic Museum is celebrating springtime with many different activities during the school holidays!  Spring is a time for love, when our little fish lay eggs and give birth to some magnificent marine species.  Fun, educational workshops await you, in which the secrets of our aquariums will be revealed.

SPECIAL "SPRINGTIME" ACTIVITIES

Whose Egg is This?
Springtime is the beginning of a time for love, even under water!  For many species that reproduce by laying eggs, it’s the time for nuptial parades, dances and mating.  Whether they're round, rectangular or exotically shaped, these little eggs are full of surprises.  An activity for children of all ages.
Every day at 3.15 p.m. and 4.15 p.m. - Meet in the Albert Ier Room (Level 1) 

Drawing Workshop:  "Draw Me a Shark"*
Sharpen your pencils – and your eyes!  This introductory drawing workshop is an opportunity to seek out some specimens in the aquariums and learn how to capture them – not with a view to eating them, but with an artist's eye!
Supplement of 5 € per person, 10 people maximum per session, NO booking.  Drawing materials provided.
Every day from Saturday 25 April to Sunday 10 May, except Monday 4 May.  Workshops at 1.30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4.30 p.m. – Meet in the Entrance Hall (Level 0)

Meet the Tortoises
Who's hiding under the third largest shell in the world? Come and find out on the panoramic terrace.  An activity leader will tell you all about the spurred tortoises that arrived at "Tortoise Island" in 2012 and are now reproducing at the Museum.  You can also meet the little tortoises that were born in 2014.
Every day at 5.15 p.m. – Meet on the panoramic terrace (Level 2)

Times, tickets and further information available at the ticket offices and on www.oceano.org

"The Heart of the Ocean" Beats for You

You can see it, hear it and find out all about it every hour throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Stroking Pool
Gently and with respect, come and enjoy special contact with the sharks!  Slip you hand into the water and stroke the back or the side of a striped leopard shark.  An unforgettable experience!
Every day from 10 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. – Temporary exhibition room (Level 0)

Feeding Time for the Fish
Don't miss the Lagoon residents' daily meal!  This spectacular time is a unique opportunity to chat to our staff.  Sitting in front of the aquarium with their eyes riveted on the fish, the children won't miss a single moment.
Every day at 11.15 a.m. – Meet at the Aquarium (Levels -1 and -2)
