Get Spooked At The Haunted Aquarium

Get ready for some two-night spooky fun at the Haunted Aquarium(Birch Aquarium)!



At this Haunted Aquarium, you can enjoy close encounters with Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientists and search the galleries for unusual, spooky sea creatures rarely seen at Birch.



Discover a sea of glowing beasts, get sticky with slime, and enjoy spooky stories, all while boo-gieing down to live music and having a monstrously good time.


Some fun activities include:

  • Scripps Institution of Oceanography Scientists showcasing exciting, and sometimes spooky, research!
  • Slime: Make your own seaweed slime to take home
  • Frankensquid: Get up close and personal with a huge Humboldt Squid and learn what makes it unique inside and out
  • 3-D microscope: experience the smallest  amazing 3-D microscope developed by Scripps Oceanography scientists.


There will also be a ‘Spooky Story Time’ (but not too spooky) where youngsters can gather around and listen to a shipwreck tale, crafts for all ages, and live music.

Those in a family-friendly costume will win a prize!
