Aquarium of the Pacific
The Aquarium of the Pacific is the fourth most-attended aquarium in the nation. It displays over 11,000 animals in more than 50 exhibits that represent the diversity of the Pacific Ocean.
The Aquarium features a NOAA Science on a Sphere, which exhibits imagery and real-time ocean and weather data on a six-foot diameter globe. It also presents daily shows covering topics such as sea level rise and marine ecosystems. Throughout the year, the Aquarium features art exhibits, performing arts shows, and cultural festivals as a way to engage new audiences and make science accessible.
