Statement of Purpose:

To stimulate interest, increase knowledge and promote stewardship of the oceans through exhibits, education and research.

All the wonders of a hidden world come to light at the internationally acclaimed Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Nearly a hundred innovative habitat galleries and exhibits plunge you into Monterey Bay - the heart of the nation's largest marine sanctuary - on a journey to its deep reefs, rocky shores, turbulent tide pools, shale reefs, sloughs, sandy seafloors and even its wharves.

And we put you in touch with them, too - you can stroke the rough skin of an ochre star at the Touch Tide Pool, or the velvety back of a bat ray at the Bat Ray Pool. Turn a telescope toward a sea otter in the kelp beds offshore, or a microscope on a brittlestar in the Kelp Lab. All the exhibits bring the entire family closer to sea life than ever before.
