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.
Laboratory Open House attendees board the trolley in front of Building 74 to partake in other Ocean Fun Day and Coastal Defense Day activities. The Laboratory held its 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. The trolley was sponsored by the Sandy Hook Foundation and transported visitors to a plethora of Ocean Fun Day and Coastal Defense Day activities occurring on Sandy Hook.
