Wall-sized Displays, Fun Learning

Learning from the big screen can’t be any better than learning from a wall-sized mural!  And at The Pier Aquarium, we’ve got plenty of them.

Our exhibits cover topical marine issues with the most current information. Read about hurricanes and how hurricane watchers monitor them. Learn about some of the animals that live in Tampa Bay and why they are important. Discover how to be a part of the solution for the Florida Red Tide.  Listen to fish and other sea creatures “talk” to each other.

Our ocean science partners provide their expertise, information and funding and helped our Scientific Staff develop these interactive experiences.

Florida Department of Health & the Center for Disease Control
