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.
Officer-in-Charge Peter Plantamura and a Marine Academy of Science and Technology student volunteer are stationed with a Laboratory research vessel in the Building 74 courtyard at the Laboratory’s 2010 Open House. The R/V Harvey, a 21-foot maritime skiff, is exhibited with information about research vessel data collection and an orange survival suit, which visitors were welcomed to try on for size! Held 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. Volunteers, which included family of Laboratory staff, MAST students, and Laboratory interns, helped make the Open House enjoyable and informative for visitors.
