The docent at the touch tank, stood in front of the display stating that the horseshoe crab was 400 million years old, and told us that "Science doesn't always get it right, and that Christians know that the earth is only 6000 years old like it says in the Bible". I told her that a 6000-yr-old earth is contrary to all the scientific evidence, and most Christians believe the science, and then walked away. But I was appalled that a docent at a science museum was "volunteering" her opinion as fact and disputing the very display she stood in front of.

Print this Groupon out before you go to the Sea Lab. Cell reception is not very good by the Sea Lab and you may not be able to pull it up.

A fun ferry ride from Ft Morgan and an easy walk from the dock, this little gem will delight 4-12 year olds who enjoy hands on encounters with sharks, rays, horse shoe crabs, hermit crabs and other creatures under the care of friendly docents.
