Visit the Aquarium when it's Less Busy
We want every guest who visits the Aquarium of the Pacific to have a positive experience. In order to do that, the Aquarium needs to limit the number of people who enter the facility so that large crowds do not overwhelm the exhibit galleries.
During our more popular summer periods and holidays when we anticipate higher attendance, the Aquarium of the Pacific utilizes a timed ticketing system, which allows each guest a special time to enter the facility. While you wait for your entrance time, we suggest exploring nearby downtown Long Beach restaurants and attractions.
