Beat the heat this summer by visting the new Arctic and Antarctic: Our Polar regions in Peril exhibit. Learn about the icy polar regions and what you can do to protect our changing planet.

Summer is a great time for teachers to enjoy their time off and visit the Aquarium without student in tow! Go looking for whales on a Blue Whale Watch, join a Behind the Scenes Tour, attend a lecture, or simply visit our new exibits. We hope to see you at the Aquarium during the hot summer months!

This summer, the Aquarium opened two new exhibits aimed at changing how you see the world. In Arctic and Antarctic: Our Polar Regions in Peril, guests can learn about the icy ends of the earth, see arctic char and king crabs, touch a moon jelly, and learn about our impacts on the planet. Have I mentioned the exhibit is BEAUTIFUL! With the new Ocean Science Center, guests can experience a 6 foot floating sphere. Movies about sea level rise and the ports of San Pedro Bay are playing throughout the day. And coming this fall, the Ocean Science Center will be a classroom space available to school groups at the Aquarium. More information on new school programs will be coming soon. For a preview of both exhibits, click here and here.

Finally - Thanks to all the teachers and families that joined us for Teacher Family Day on June 24. We had a great turn out. Look for future opportunities to visit the Aquarium and learn about our programs.
