The Laboratory collection features both historical and current images of the James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory facilities, as well as its staff at work, Laboratory Open Houses, and images of the Laboratory's first director, Dr. Lionel A. Walford.
A Laboratory room is decked out as the interior of a submarine as part of the “NOAA Explorer: Virtual Submarine Voyage” show. Participants in the interactive adventure, developed by Jeffrey Pessutti of the Behavioral Ecology Branch, were treated to an animated and narrated exploration of Sandy Hook Bay that included live fish. Children and adults alike enjoyed the “voyage,” which was just one of the many exhibits at the Laboratory’s 2010 Open House. The Laboratory held its 2010 Open House in conjunction with the Sandy Hook Ocean Fun Day, an annual event jointly sponsored by the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium and New Jersey Natural Gas. Over 1,200 visitors toured the Laboratory, viewed exhibits, and got their hands dirty in the touch-tanks and other hands-on activities.
