Did you know that YOU — a member of one of the more recent additions to the animal kingdom — may owe your life to a horseshoe crab — one of the oldest?

Today, humans are looking to the seas as a source of inspiration for medical breakthroughs to feats of engineering — and much, much MORE!

DIVE DEEPER into the world's largest habitat with an EXCLUSIVE curator talk on Sunday, April 15, led by Putnam Curator of Natural Science Christine Chandler, M.S.

Get a rare HANDS-ON look at some of the Putnam's ocean artifacts during this pre-show event, FREE when you purchase tickets to the 1:45 p.m. showing of the new "Oceans 3D" movie in the GIANT Screen Theater.

Travel from the ancient Mediterranean to the modern Atlantic coast and BEYOND to explore some of these new (and not-so-new) discoveries from the seas.

"Gifts from the Seas" begins at 1 p.m.; the featured film starts at 1:45 p.m. This curator talk will take place just once on April 15 and will not be available before other showings of "Oceans 3D" throughout the day.

Tickets are $8.50 for adults, $7 for youth and $7.50 for seniors, military and college students. Putnam members take $1 off regular ticket prices.
