Enjoy Seasonal Hours

A pair enjoys sipping wine while delving into the fascinating world of intertidal zone creatures.
When March 1 - Sept. 2 | Open until 7 p.m.

Once the hustle and bustle of peak hours fades away, Birch Aquarium takes on a different vibe creating the perfect atmosphere for a more relaxed visit! Grab a bite or a beer at Splash! Café and enjoy the aquarium in a whole new light. Don’t miss the start of a beautiful sunset on Tide Pool Plaza or the opportunity to witness the way animals behave at twilight.

During seasonal hours, all exhibits and hands-on activities  — as well as Splash! Café and the Gift Shop — will remain open for the full aquarium experience. Advanced reservations are required (unless you are a member). Note that the aquarium closes early on select dates for special events, so double-check before you visit.
