The National Marine Aquarium was the first aquarium in the United Kingdom to be set up solely for the purpose of education, conservation and research. It remains Britain's foremost aquarium and in the four years it has been open it has attracted over one and half million visitors through its door and thousands of enquiries by letter, telephone, fax and email.

The exhibits at the National Marine Aquarium are set up with this in mind and we strive to improve what you can see and add to what you can learn. Each year a special exhibition is mounted, concentrating on some aspect of the aquatic environment. We have ventured into the 'World of Sharks', revealed the 'Jewels of Plymouth Sound' and delved into the world of 'Water Life'. We have recently opened a 'View Behind the Scenes - Window on Conservation' and plan an interactive investigation into the 'Life of Whales'
