Host Your Next Event at Birch Aquarium

Located high on a bluff with dramatic ocean views, Birch Aquarium at Scripps is a unique and engaging venue for any event. Our one-of-a-kind facility includes more than 60 diverse marine habitats, and features a two-story Giant Kelp Tank where guests feel surrounded by the ocean world. Birch Aquarium is the public outreach center for the renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, and your guests will dive deeper into the cutting edge research being done to understand, protect, and preserve the planet.

The mission of Birch Aquarium is to provide ocean science education, interpret Scripps Institution of Oceanography research, and promote ocean conservation.

Your special event directly supports Birch Aquarium’s mission. Not only will an event at Birch Aquarium create lasting memories, it will also inspire ocean conservation by supporting exhibits, animal care, and education programs. Our experienced Special Events Team is here to help you create memorable events for conventions, corporate events, professional events, academic retreats, wedding receptions and ceremonies, social organizations, and family occasions.
