The Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre, located at the Gibsons Public Market, has begun a phased opening and will be open on weekends.
The centre will be open Friday to Sunday from 11am–5pm while our work on the development of the 30 live exhibits continues. Thursday will be reserved for school groups.
A special admission fee will apply until our official opening in early 2018: adult $6, students $5, under 10 $3, and under 3 free. A family day pass for children and two adults is $16.
We will also offer family and individual passes for unlimited visits until Dec. 31, 2017: family $45, single $25. (15 per cent discount on passes for public market members).
This year’s passes will be ideal for those who want to stop in often and see our progress, including how we integrate interactive technology generously donated by TELUS to enhance the learning experience of visitors.
