Marine Research Laboratory

The Marine Research Lab is where you’ll find the coral nurseries with starfish, urchins and cleaner shrimp on display. 

The Marine Research Lab is home to some of the world’s most unusual inhabitants. Our specially designed open-top and bubble-glass display tanks offer magnificent views of incredible creatures like clownfish, spiny sea urchins and lion fish.

Aquarist for a day

The health of our aquarium family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the most recent advice from Public Health England and the government, we will be temporarily closing the Oceanarium Bournemouth effective immediately, until further notice.

We apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience caused.

Please be assured that our dedicated keeper team will continue to provide the best care for our animals during the closure.

If you’ve booked tickets for any day during this closure, you can exchange them for any other date in 2020 or we can provide a refund. Please send your booking details to marketing@reallive.co.uk.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels. Thank you for your patience and we really look forward to welcoming you back to the Oceanarium when we re-open. Stay safe everyone.
