Located in Watermen's Hall on our Gloucester Point campus, the Virginia Institute of Marine Science Visitors Center features aquaria and life-sized models to help you better understand and appreciate the marine ecosystems of Chesapeake Bay. You'll also learn how VIMS research, education, and advisory service activities help sustain and enhance estuarine and coastal resources for current and future generations, both in Virginia and around the world.
The Visitors Center is open year-round Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
Currently, the visitor's center is open to anyone ages 5 and up that wear masks (as per William & Mary policy).
