Behind the Scenes

Experience an incredible insider’s view of the Aquarium. Discover our animals and plants in front of the galleries, then follow our guide and rediscover life behind the scenes. You’ll see where we care for animals, how we prepare food, and where we keep newcomers before they can be seen by the public. Plus, you’ll see how pumps, pipes, and filters work together to keep the animals and plants healthy.
