Are you ready to go Beyond Shells?

Explore our newest addition: an aquarium gallery filled with living mollusks (the animals that create shells).

Learn about mollusks from around the world, including the Giant Pacific Octopus, cuttlefish, sea hares, inhabitants of the Great Barrier Reef, fighting conchs, and the rare Junonia. Pop up into the middle of our oyster bed, then engage with animals in our two touch pools and learn from our educational staff about the mollusks you're holding!
