Great White Shark

NEW! Digital Dome Theater Technology

We have upgraded our dome theater’s technology. The changes are so compelling you need to see it to believe it!

The dome theater is the largest in the state – with a soaring  60-foot tall screen, an immersive 360 degree view, and booming Dolby sound. It’s an exceptional experience!

And you do not have to pay museum admission to do the dome – only $5 or less per ticket!
