Schools & Field Trips

Ignite imagination and wonder in your class as they discover thousands of sea creatures and come face-to-face with animals from around the world.


We recommend allowing 1 hour to fully explore the aquarium and complete the self-guided activities. It’s easy to structure your visit around other daily activities such as feeding demonstrations and classroom programs. Complete your experience with a 45-minute session designed to inspire and educate students from Preschool through High School. All programs meet Minnesota State Academic Standards.
