SEATTLE (AP) - The new Marine Life Center on the Oregon Coast is part museum, part aquarium, part learning lab and part gallery. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held over the weekend at the new attraction at the mouth of Coos Bay.

KUOW-FM in Seattle reports (https://is.gd/oRgV6p ) the center is located on the campus of the University of Oregon’s marine lab overlooking the marina in Charleston. It was built with grants, donations and money left over from other projects.

It will be open to the public on afternoons from Wednesday through Saturday. Admission for children and students is free.
