What's on at the Florida Aquarium

The Florida Aquarium hosts The Ocean Decade Exhibition, a traveling global art showcase that aims to raise awareness of the importance of the ocean. Highlighting the 7 Principles of Ocean Literacy through unique and thought-provoking digital works of art, you'll come away with a deeper knowledge of the ocean's plight and conservation.

Browse a series of animated displays to learn about unique perspectives of life underwater and reflect on the ocean’s importance to life on Earth. The exhibition is vividly displayed on large digital screens located in the CIBC Aquatic Lounge (on the Aquarium’ second floor),

The Ocean Decade Exhibition is included in the price of your general admission ticket.

From the colorful to the camouflaged, from the slightly slimy to the super smooth, each animal in MORPH’D tells a unique story of survival. You’ll learn the shocking truth about electric eels and paddlefish, see through the eyes of a mudskipper or four-eyed fish and discover toxic tales of red cherry shrimp and poison dart frogs. And, so much more!

Located in the Aquarium’s new Mosaic Exhibit Hall on the 2nd floor, MORPH’D is a highly interactive experience featuring utterly engaging and resilient species with unique adaptations.
