This winter visit the Aquarium’s FROGS: Dazzling and Disappearing exhibit and enjoy festivals and discounted late nights.

The Aquarium will host Discounted Late Nights on January 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 14. After 5:00 p.m. on those dates admission is $14.95 for all ages, and the Aquarium is open until 8:00 p.m.

Festivals in January and February include Underwater Parks Day on January 20, which offers visitors the opportunity to learn more about Southern California’s marine protected areas and the commercial and recreational activities they host. The annual Festival of Human Abilities on January 27 and 28 celebrates the creative talents of people with disabilities. On February 24 and 25 experience the Aquarium’s African-American Festival, with performances by Mardi Gras second line dancers, hip hop and break dancers, jazz musicians, interactive drum circles, West African dancers, and storytellers.

Finally, be sure to visit the FROGS: Dazzling and Disappearing exhibit housed in the Tropical Pacific Gallery on the second floor. It traces the history of amphibians, details their life cycles, demonstrates the different environments they live in from deserts to rainforests, and highlights the diversity of species and their surprisingly uncertain future.
