California Academy of Sciences is hosting “Sharks,” a jaw-dropping new exhibit exploring the fascinating world of these dynamic ocean predators.
Exhibit is free with admission to Cal Academy. Price: $31.75 to $43.75
Leave the outside world behind as you dive into the incredible underwater world of sharks—without even getting your feet wet. Trace over 450 million years of evolution, come face-to-face with the storied great white shark (in model form), learn about current conservation efforts to protect vulnerable shark populations, and gain a whole new level of respect for the ocean’s oldest and most effective predator.
Peruse 370 million year-old fossils, teeth, and jaws to get to know ancient sharks. Then, examine life-size models that showcase the wondrous diversity of species alive today and enjoy cinematic experiences that immerse you in their underwater world.
Throughout the exhibit, discover how Academy science and advocacy has helped transform public perception of sharks from fear to fascination. You’ll gain a powerful understanding of why sharks are vital to ocean health, and feel inspired by the research and conservation efforts underway to help ensure these majestic top predators survive long into the future.
“Sharks” is a limited engagement that invites visitors to explore the most comprehensive and innovative ‘out of water’ shark experience ever to tour the world. “Sharks” will run through January 23, 2022 at the Academy in Golden Gate Park.
