Every creature has a story to tell…

Head to the Marine Science Centre in Portobello these school holidays to hear tales of daring deeds, find out why the spotty lost its spot, and how the sea cucumber got its name! Be thrilled by a spine-chilling story from the deep, and be spired to craft a tale of your own!
