    Behind-the-Scenes Aquarium Tour

    Take an exclusive look at the non-public, working areas of the Discovery Place aquarium. Join us on this approximately 25-minute behind-the-scenes tour and discover how our aquarists breed jellyfish and propagate coral. Learn about recent research or animal husbandry projects, visit laboratories and food prep areas, and explore the technical and mechanical systems we rely on to maintain the aquarium. Each tour is limited to 8 people. Participants must be at least 8 years old.
