Our Vision

Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are a non-profit 501c3 organization, and our goal is to develop a state-of-the-art Earth, Sea and Space Center on the New Hampshire Seacoast. Our group is working to create a facility that is outstanding in its educational, environmental and economic benefits.

We envision a facility which combines large-scale aquarium and science museum exhibits, and highlights the complex relationship between earth, sea, and space.

Our aim is to provide educational opportunities for every age and interest level. We are committed to exhibits and programs that are dynamic, interactive, fresh, and scientifically current.

We are incorporating feedback from our partnership organizations, related local attractions, and the public as our vision evolves. We are also organizing support and funding for the facility, and coordinating the necessary planning and strategies needed to bring our Earth, Sea and Space Center to life.

Mission Statement of “Window on the Waters:” A Museum of Earth, Sea and Space

To provide an outstanding educational experience highlighting our diverse water environments and the complex relationship between earth, sea, weather and space. To provide educational opportunities for every age and interest level. To teach in a manner that is entertaining and enlightening. To maintain an ongoing commitment to exhibits and programs that are dynamic, interactive, fresh and scientifically current. To participate in continuing research for the betterment of our earth and to broaden the understanding of its people.

At this facility, visitors will learn how the waters of our world shape our earth and our lives. They will understand how the forces of our planet relate, and see how weather and climate affect our past, present and future. They will hunt for geological clues to our history and examine our changing landscape. They will learn the critical role space technology plays in the health of our planet, and discover how our forays into the heavens aid our research here on earth.

* The mission statement for Window on the Waters will evolve as the facility itself evolves and develops, but we see these as clear, initial goals.
