It’s O-Fish-Al: Birch Aquarium Is Now Open Indoors And Out!

Birch Aquarium To Reopen September 15

Outdoor experiences will stay

Several of the experiences that were added to the aquarium when they were operating outdoors-only will remain to encourage social distancing and give guests more to explore. These include the new tropical touch experience, the Growing Up Seahorse activity, and the small animal nursery, all on Smargon Court near Shark Shores.
