We offer a wide variety of programs for students pre-K through high school. All programs are 60-90 minutes and include a guided tour led by Aquarium educators. Every offering includes interactive materials to encourage inquiry-based learning. Ample on-site bus parking. Learn more.

Virtual Visits

We offer flexible virtual programming designed to meet the needs of any group from anywhere.

All options include a live, interactive program with Q&A opportunities throughout. Learn more.

Urban Birding

Join an Aquarium educator to find as many birds as possible and contribute to citizen science as we log the data in real-time using the eBird app. The Aquarium provides binoculars and a guide to common birds in the area. No birding experience necessary. A guided Aquarium tour follows the program. Learn more.

Special Needs

We welcome special needs groups with reservations. Due to current capacity restrictions, the minimum group size is 5 people and the maximum is 10 people (including clients & paid personal care attendants). Available Monday – Friday with 72 hours advance notice. Learn more.
