Hidden deep below the surface of the ocean is a vast world filled with some of the most unusual creatures on Earth. Get up close to many of them in the Adventure Aquarium’s Jules Verne Gallery. Named after the celebrated authored of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, the Jules Verne Gallery features an impressive collection of exhibits that highlight strange and fascinating creatures of the deep.

Enter Jules Verne to encounter magical creatures like Pacific Sea Nettles and Moon Jellies, or learn why Weedy Sea Dragons are described as one of the most elaborately camouflaged creatures on the Planet. And come face to face with a Giant Pacific Octopus, known for its intelligence. In fact, these invertebrates are so smart, they can complete puzzles and problem-solve for food. And if all of that wasn’t enough, Jules Verne provides a stunning view into our 550,000-gallon Shark Realm Exhibit, which houses the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast.

Best of all, you have the chance to get up close to “Randolph,” the brightly hued Giant Pacific Octopus.

Discover the amazing and bizarre creatures found deep below the oceans’ surface in the magical underwater world that is the Jules Verne Gallery.
