Plan your Visit

Since opening in 2010, the Living Art Marine Center in Honolulu Hawaii has grown into a staple for marine science education and a local favorite for families to enjoy the beauty of the undersea world. As of 2018, the Living Art Marine Center is permanently closed. Visitations are not accepted. This page is for your reference purposes only.


We would like to take this moment to thank the community for the immense support for our education programs. Over the past 8 years, the Marine Center offered hands-on activity-based marine science programs for up to 30,000 visitors a year. With no outside funding and a very small staff, it is a testament of what can be done for marine science education and conservation. A big mahalo to our island 'ohana for the support and the wonderful years.
