Maria Mitchell Association

The Nantucket Maria Mitchell Association was founded in 1902 to preserve the legacy of Nantucket native astronomer and educator, Maria Mitchell. In addition to the two observatories and a natural science museum, the Association has an aquarium.  Tenji is desiging the exhibits and LSS for an invertebrate touch tank, aquarium and terrarium displays, and an outdoor shark touch tank.  The touch tank displays local Nantucket sealife. Displays are always changing and range from crabs and shellfish to fish and eels.
