The high point at this small visitor’s center is a climb aboard a life-size replica of the DSV Alvin, the deep-submergence vehicle that discovered the Titanic. But there are a range of other interactive exhibits here that will intrigue children and their parents, including a computer program about whale and dolphin sounds, a hydrothermal vent exhibit, and a presentation about toxic algae. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (called WHOI—rhymes with phooey) is a world-class research organization and a $100-million operation mostly funded by the federal government. It, along with the Marine Biological Laboratory and the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), helped make this little fishing village into a world-renowned science community.
