MOSI kicks off Shark Week with a big chomp on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The celebration will continue throughout the week as the first 50 people of each day, Aug. 3 – 9, will receive free MOSI admission when they buy a ticket to Sea Monsters Revealed.
On Saturday and throughout the week, guests will be able to view real shark dissections in MOSI’s grand lobby. Additionally, Dr. Daniel Huber, shark expert, consultant for Discovery Channel, and
professor, will be at MOSI to speak about some of the myths and mysteries associated
with these fascinating creatures. Guests will be able to view the night sky
over some of the world’s most active Great White Shark feeding grounds inside
The Saunders Planetarium, and build their own Lego® sharks inside MOSI’s
inventor’s studio, Idea Zone. For an additional fee, guests can experience Sea Monsters Revealed, where they will see not only the outside, but also
the inside of the most elusive
aquatic life ever discovered, including a 15-foot-long mako shark, a pregnant
silky shark, and an 18-foot-long, 3,000-pound whale shark. University of Tampa
