Explorer Backpacks


A New Way to Explore the Aquarium

Get more out of your visit to the Aquarium with an Explorer Backpack, available exclusively to members. Explorer Backpacks are filled with activities, props, and background information that will bring new light to your favourite Aquarium galleries and animals.

There are three new backpacks for you to try and explore!

Pick one up at Guest Services any day of the week between 12:30 – 4:30 p.m. Backpacks are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Bring your membership card to borrow a backpack.

This is a free activity but a credit card number is required to check out a backpack. Backpacks are for use only while you are at the Aquarium and cannot be taken home.

Engaged Explorers Activity

Want to dive deeper? Try our free Engaged Explorer Activities. Every three months, members can try a new activity which takes our young explorers around the galleries to learn more about the fish, invertebrates and other animals around our galleries. It requires a keen eye, an inquisitive mind, and a zest for exploration. Check in at the Guest Services Desk for our latest activity! 

Not a member? Join today to gain access to these activities and many other benefits.
