The Ocean Hall contains traditional mounted specimens paired with innovative technology, providing guests with a thorough and original experience. The hall offers an exciting opportunity to learn about this large and complex ecosystem, from the deepest reaches of the ocean to the microscopic life underfoot at the beach. Featured are a set of 7-foot-tall prehistoric shark jaws and a model of a 45-foot-long North Atlantic right whale named “Phoenix,” suspended from the hall’s more than 4-story-high ceiling.

Explore the Ocean Hall within the NMNH Virtual Tour.
