Oregon's OSU Hatfield Marine Science Visitor Center creates a unique, dynamic environment for lifelong exploration and discovery. The Visitor Center encourages adults and children to enjoy marine science.

Our exhibits and programs explain how scientific research enhances our ability to interpret the natural patterns that shape our world and enables us to better appreciate, manage, and sustain coastal and marine resources.

The Visitor Center also provides opportunities for conducting research on devices, methods, and concepts for informal science education that will advance the art of public education.
