Shark Week!

Shark Week is back at the Science Mill! Encounter the predator we all love to fear this Shark Week, July 31 - August 4! Shark Week activities include:

Special showings of Great White Shark 3D Movie

(3D movie is included in museum general admission. See front desk for movie showtimes)

Misrepresented, maligned and misunderstood, the Great White Shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear. Shot on location in South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and California, the film looks to find the truth behind the mythic creature forever stigmatized by its portrayal in the world’s first blockbuster movie, JAWS.
