Sharkfest highlights the ultimate apex predator of the marine world. During Sharkfest, live sharks will be featured in the Corbin Pavilion. The museum is full of hands-on opportunities to explore the diversity of sharks and their remarkable history on planet Earth. Learn fascinating ‘sharktoids’, examine evidence of prehistoric sharks, paint a shark mural, make a shark-themed craft, get your face painted ($5 fee), and take your picture in the life-size jaws of a Megalodon shark. The award-winning Museum Store will be fully stocked with new shark mementos to take home. Museum members save 10% off in the store and everyone will enjoy the new express checkout at Sharkfest. Both vilified and ruthlessly hunted, this keystone species is becoming seriously threatened. Learn why preserving these ancient animals is critical to the health of our oceans. Strollers are not allowed in the museum during Sharkfest. http://www.choosecalvert.com/calendar.aspx?EID=5733
