The Tampa Bay Watch Discovery Center
Located on the over-water walkway approaching the Pier head, the Discovery Center presents all you need to know about Tampa Bay’s unique ecosystem in a way that’s entertaining and hands-on. The indoor Exhibit Gallery features an Estuary Habitat that showcases a variety of species found in local waters. Visitors can also experience interactive displays, video presentations, a touch tank and docent-led tours. Adjacent to the exhibit gallery is a state-of-the-art classroom that accommodates school field trips and programs for students of all ages. But the Discovery Center is not strictly an indoor experience. The “wet classroom” offers larger outdoor demonstrations and lectures. It’s bordered by walkways and railings, and includes an amphitheater-style observation deck.
Teachers and chaperones must be involved and are responsible for student discipline issues.
Selected activities are weather-dependent/subject to change according to the discretion of Tampa Bay Watch staff.
