Join us in the sanctuary visitor center theater for an MSU Night at the Museum & Sanctuary Cinema Event! Enjoy a selection of short films about science and exploration across the 14 sites within the National Marine Sanctuary System. Exhibits will also be open!
When you look at our planet from space, one thing is abundantly clear: Earth Is Blue. Our planet is an ocean planet, and whether you live near the coast or a thousand miles from it, the ocean is part of your life. From providing the food we eat to determining our weather, the ocean matters to each of us — and the National Marine Sanctuary System protects this vital resource. Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary will showcase a collection of “Earth Is Blue” short videos that bring ocean and Great Lakes treasures to the big screen. These striking videos serve as a tangible reminder that no matter where you are, the ocean and Great Lakes are in your hands. These images will inspire you to help care for our ocean and to spread the word that Earth isn’t green — it’s blue.
