Embark on a journey into the hidden world of coral reefs in Expedition Reef, the Academy's award-winning, fulldome planetarium show exploring some of our planet’s most biodiverse—and critically threatened—ecosystems.
Dive into the heart of the Academy’s iconic Philippine Coral Reef tank as thousands of tropical fish flutter by. Travel the globe to explore coral reefs teeming with life and learn how scientists are racing to develop sustainable solutions to protect and regenerate these vitally important ecosystems for the future. Along the way, discover how corals live, breathe, and reproduce, supporting a quarter of all marine life on Earth and providing critical benefits to human communities in our ever-changing world.
Please note: Planetarium shows may not be appropriate for children under 7, and we regret that we cannot admit any child under 4.
