"Birch Aquarium At Scripps is a..." Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography Tip by brdwtchr

 
 

Birch Aquarium At Scripps is a great place. Coming from Kansas I did not know a lot about the ocean. This is a great place to learn about the ocean and marine creatures. Some of the things I saw are in the travelogue.
There is a museum, book shop, tanks full of fish, a touch pool out side, and a great view of the LaJolla cove. It is appropriate that this marine research facility is so close to the cove where marine creatures are protected.
