Experience the spectacular diversity of the many amazing sea creatures that thrive in the waters surrounding Sitka. The aquarium houses an 850-gallon tank that gives visitors a glimpse of our kelp forest ecosystem and local fish species. The three large touch tanks allow you to feel the spiny skin of a sea star, the soft tentacles of a sea anemone, and the coarse shell of an abalone. During your visit take a guided tour through the salmon hatchery to learn about the history of hatcheries in Alaska, the salmon lifecycle, and the process for collecting eggs. This non-profit science center is dedicated to science research and education. It is a part of the historic Sheldon Jackson Campus located a 0.5 mile walk from Harrigan Centennial Hall downtown on the way to the Raptor Center and the Sitka National Historical Park.
