Here at the UK’s largest Aquarium, there’s truly something for everyone – from tiny tots to retired scientists, and everyone in between, the NMA offers a range of exciting exhibits and activities that are sure to get you excited about our Ocean.

We’re much more than just an Aquarium, too – we’re an educational centre of excellence, run by the Ocean Conservation Trust – and it is our goal to connect as many people with the Ocean as we possibly can.
