Pacific Discovery Tank


April 7th 2022 - September 5th 2022
Ottawa, Ontario

The Canadian Museum of Nature has some new aquatic residents: live anemones, urchins, sea cucumbers, sea stars and more are now on view in a newly-unveiled interactive feature in the Water Gallery. The Pacific Discovery Tank is 14.6-feet (almost five metres) long and reveals the interesting creatures that inhabit tide pools (shallow pools of water along rocky shores that are exposed during low tide).

With transparent sides and installed at children’s eye-level, the tank is a window into the wonders of tide-pool life that’s easily accessible for all visitors. 

On weekends and Thursday evenings, museum interpreters will be at the tank, and the public will be able to touch some of the creatures under the educator’s guidance during those times. The tank will also be staffed during school breaks and holidays.  

The museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday. For information about hours, consult nature.ca/en/plan-your-visit/hours.

Timed-ticketing is in effect. Purchase tickets at nature.ca.
