Aquarium of the Pacific

Home to more than 12,000 animals, the Aquarium of the Pacific explores the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Visitors are greeted by a full-scale model of a blue whale as they enter the Great Hall of the Pacific. Reach in and touch more than 100 sharks in the Shark Lagoon, walk through the Lorikeet Forest to feed dozens of Australian lorikeets, observe veterinary procedures at the Molina Animal Care Center, and interact with so many more exhibits.

The Aquarium also offers special Animal Encounters with sharks and rays, seals and sea lions, or penguins for an additional fee.

Family-friendly events are scheduled throughout the year including festivals, sleepovers, virtual classes, and more.
