Since it opened more than 20 years ago, the Birch Aquarium has functioned as the public exploration center for the world-renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Situated atop a beautiful bluff near the Pacific Ocean, the Birch Aquarium is designed centrally so that visitors can easily access any of the main exhibits from the main lobby.
Investigate the Hall of Fishes, an exhibition of approximately 60 tanks of Pacific fishes and invertebrates including a 70,000-gallon kelp forest. Take a stroll through Preuss Tide Pool Plaza, which is equipped with three living tide pools that are designed for hands-on discovery. Smargon Courtyard is another big attraction, probably because it holds a 13,000-gallon shark reef tank.
