There's plenty to discover at the Aquarium!

  • Curiosity Carts: Look for carts stationed in various locations featuring interesting artifacts and demonstrations.
  • Divers in Aquariums: Our team of staff and volunteer divers do regularly scheduled maintenance in the largest aquariums. When you stop by to observe, an educator will be there to answer your questions.
  • Gallery Programs: Aquarium educators also conduct Q & A sessions at selected aquariums and exhibits.
  • Up Close & Personal: Our staff will have an animal for you to see up close. Learn adaptations and behaviors that make this animal unique.
