  • Walked from our condo nice little place to spend some time. Enjoyed the exhibits. Haven't been here in awhile. Hit with the kids.  more »
  • We were excited to go here. Once we got there, it was much smaller than we expected. The exhibits were still interesting. It didn't take much time to tour this.  more »
  • Such a great little educational center with some neat wildlife! The women who worked there were enthusiastic and answered all of our questions. You could tell they were passionate about what they do. ...  more »

  • They'll be moving to a better location soon, so information about it may change. They've got a touch pool, lots of information about their fish and turtles, and several live exhibits. When we were there, a guide had the corn snake out of the cage and was entertaining the children with it. We had a great time! It costs $5 per person as of June 2017, age 4 and under are free. This gets you entrance all day, and free "behind the scenes" tours three times a day. Definitely recommend it while you're in Tybee!
  • The tanks were well-kept but not fully stocked on account of last October's hurricane, so that is to be expected. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the educator that gave us a tour, Andrea, was both knowledgeable and passionate about what the Tybee Island Marine Science Center does. It's well worth the price of admission with or without the guided tour, but of course you will feel you got the most out of your money if you get a guided tour. Highly recommend checking it out!
  • They four small sized rooms with tank displays and an area to touch the local sea creatures. It has a gift shop with plenty to choose from and it is decently priced. $5 entry fee. Staff was friendly. Great for small children.
  • Nice little place for a learning experience. Very small and tight. Kids had fun looking at the fish and wildlife. 5 dollars for anyone over 4.
  • Rather small but my 4-y/o and infant son really enjoyed this place. It was $10 admission for my wife, two kids and myself; admission covers the entire day (you can leave and return later without paying again). Large parking lot adjacent to the building and pier is within 50ft. We were here during off hours so it's possible this place (the parking especially) could get very crowded during peak vacation times.
