The week attracts tens of thousands of visitors who come to witness the city’s all-American celebration that includes live music, baseball, beautiful beaches and aerial excitement the famous hometown Blue Angels provide.

out Special that we have decided to extend free admission for children 11 & under for the rest of the summer! Don’t you want to go back to school with something cool to tell all of your friends? Then stop by the PMA now until August 9!
Currently on display is The Lure of the Ocean: Original Works by Guy Harvey. While Harvey is widely recognized for his aquatic themed merchandise, he is much more than just a t-shirt brand. In addition to being an artist, Harvey is a scientist, conservationist, and explorer. Harvey earned his Ph.D from the University of the West Indies in 1984 and devotes much of his time to traveling the world in pursuit of unveiling the mysteries of the deep.
After you make your way through the galleries filled with Harvey’s original works, you can venture into Gallery 5 where you can explore mysterious marine life with Mote Marine Laboratory, make your own fish print, learn to tie nautical knots, and create a sea creature postcard to send to all of your friends.
