ponce inlet boardwalk trail with lighthouse behind the palms

Welcome to the Marine Science Center! We look forward to your upcoming visit. The MSC offers fascinating exhibits of marine life, daily resident rapture feedings, an observation tower to view the mangroves and estuaries, and sea turtle and bird hospitals.

We are located at the southern tip of the Town of Ponce Inlet, just north of Lighthouse Point Park. Come for a visit, stay the day! With so much to do and see in Ponce Inlet, why not stay to take in the rich history of the area? Visit Lighthouse Point Park to relax, take a swim or do a little fishing. The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is just a few steps away and is one of most beautiful working lighthouses on the east coast.

Take a walking tour of Ponce Inlet to learn why this inlet was and is so important. See the restored homes of the lighthouse keeper and his family from the 1800s.
