Meet and learn about 11,000 animals in more than 50 exhibits at the Aquarium of the Pacific, one the nation’s most popular aquariums.  Come face-to-face with and touch the ocean's ultimate predators in Shark Lagoon, hand-feed colorful lorikeet birds and watch Magellanic penguins play. You'll get closer to animals than ever before at the bamboo shark and cownose ray touch pool, the horseshoe crab touch lab, and tidepool touch lab. The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach celebrates the planet's largest and most diverse body of water: the Pacific Ocean, from the frigid waters of the Northern Pacific to the colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific. Visit this world-class aquarium featuring a wide array of hands-on activities, live and video presentations and much more.​​ The Aquarium’s Pacific Visions expansion will open to the public on May 24, 2019. The new, two-story wing will include an immersive high-tech theater, an art gallery, and a changing exhibits gallery with multimedia interactives and live animal exhibits.
