Vancouver Aquarium

Visitors to the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre starting March 5 through to Labour Day will experience the Canadian premiere of the groundbreaking Sea Monsters Revealed: The Exhibition.

Through a polymer preservation technique, also known as plastination, Sea Monsters Revealed will unveil some of the largest sea creatures ever to be featured on dry land. Visitors will get a unique and authentic inside look at the bodies of some of the most elusive aquatic life, including a 5-metre long mako shark, a predatory Humboldt squid and a metre-long ocean sunfish.

The exhibition will take visitors on a journey to discover how these mysterious creatures have been portrayed in myth and legend and learn the truths about them revealed through scientific research. Visitors will also have an opportunity to see an exciting new 4-D film, Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure.

Hours of operation at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily, and 9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. seasonally/statutory holiday weekends.
