Take a journey of discovery at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. Discover sunny Southern California and Baja, the frigid waters of the Northern Pacific, and the colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific. Come face-to-face with the ocean’s ultimate predators in Shark Lagoon, hand-feed colorful lorikeet birds, and watch our Magellanic penguins.  Discover Pacific Visions where you explore underwater realms and future possibilities. There’s no better time to visit the Aquarium then now!

Join us as the Aquarium of the Pacific celebrates its 25th Anniversary with new exhibits, events, and programs highlighting the remarkable natural world right outside our door. Journey through a re-imagined Southern California Gallery highlighting fascinating local animals and marine habitats. Discover colorful reefs, kelp forests, and sea grass beds as you meet a pod of lobsters, an octopus, deepwater fish, and more. Hear about the local species we are saving, how we plan to rebuild California’s coastal wild, and unique ways we are connecting our community to the healing power of nature and our deep blue ocean. And be the first to learn about our exciting vision for the future. The celebration begins May 26, 2023.
