Highlights / General details The Monterey Bay Aquarium was named the #1 Aquarium in the U. S. and the 3rd top rated overall family attraction in the country, according to the first-ever Zagat Survey┬« U.S. Family Travel Guide released in May, 2004. USA Today names Monterey Bay Aquarium one of the top 10 places to see before you're 10. 1. Visit "The Open Sea.". Out to sea and on the go — life's in constant motion in the open ocean. Visitors will see and hear tales of epic animal migrations across the Pacific through multimedia experiences connecting you with sharks, fishes, sea turtles, marine mammals and sea birds. 2. The Jellies Experience. A sensory extravaganza of live exhibits and interactive experiences that highlight the intriguing lives of these unlikely animals — their graceful movements, beautiful symmetry, deceptive fragility and surprising survival skills. 3. The Secret Lives of Seahorses. Just one look at a seahorse and it is easy to see why they fascinate people. With a head like a horse, a snout like an aardvark, a belly pouch like a kangaroo, a prehensile tail like a monkey and the ability to change colors like a chameleon, seahorses are not your average fishes. A new, multimedia special exhibition at the nation's No. 1 family aquarium will share the intriguing stories about seahorses, seahorse relatives and their habitats, as well as the major threats they face in the wild. 4. Visit "The Ocean's Edge." A dramatic transformation of the Aquarium's original exhibit galleries awaits visitors when they visit the Aquarium. "Ocean's Edge: Coastal Habitats of Monterey Bay" reintroduces visitors to the coastal habitats of California's central coast with a walk-through wave crash, improved touch pools and other experiences that incorporate hands-on approaches and important conservation themes in engaging and exciting. 5. See the Kelp Forest. It's the first and largest living kelp forest at any aquarium, a magical place on a sunny day. The Kelp Forest is filled with fish, marine plants and invertebrates. 6. Watch the sea otters frolic. Our exhibit otters were all rescued as stranded pups and cannot survive in the wild. You can see them above and below the water in a two-story exhibit. 7. Meet our penguins. You'll find them in Splash Zone, our family gallery. But the penguins aren't just for the younger set. They appeal to the kid in everyone. 8. Cruise with our sharks. The Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit gives you a close-up view of sevengill sharks and leopard sharks, as well as salmon, yellowtail and other fishes found in Monterey Bay.
