Visit one of the biggest Natural History Museums in the world!

Learn about the evolution of life on earth and discover a remarkable variety of exhibits including an aquarium, a planetarium, and a rainforest – all under one roof!

The Steinhart Aquarium contains some 38,000 fish and marine animals. You can observe African penguins on a reconstructed ice field, sharks, rays and piranhas, among other aquatic and amphibious creatures housed in the centre’s immense tanks and interactive pools.

Enter the Morrison Planetarium – the biggest digital planetarium in the world – for an interactive and breathtakingly realistic journey into outer space, giving you a closer look at the stars and planets.

To top off the visit, immerse yourself in a tropical rainforest spread over four levels. The humidity, the waterfalls, the birdsong and the croaking frogs will transport you straight into the depths of Amazonia!
