Feiro and NOAA Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary have partnered to integrate our visitor experiences as part of a new marine discovery center on the Port Angeles waterfront – a basecamp to explore hundreds of miles of  the Olympic Peninsula coast. This project is currently in the planning stages, and does not yet have a firm timeline.

Current Status of the Project

We are currently assessing the feasibility of constructing this center at City Pier. The PDF below summarizes the research for a new marine discovery center and the process that led us to focus on City Pier.

What is our Current Impact in the Community?

What Could the Future Hold?

Nearly every review of Feiro on TripAdvisor notes how wonderful, and how small, we are. Imagine if we could expand our exhibit space to include more hands-on activities for youth? Or if the stories we shared in our exhibits included a better integration of science research, our diverse local culture and local maritime history?
