This room simulates an underwater abode with paintings of large underwater creatures on the walls. It contains seaweed, sponges, and corals and shells from the Caribbean and South Africa, as well as the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of America. There is a Puffer fish, Sea Horse, and the Nautilus shell that carries the eggs of the octopus on the waves. There are many conch shells and helmet shells from which cameos are carved. A plasma TV is available to show many Nova-made DVDs.
