Water Gallery

Water covers 70% of our planet. It’s our most precious natural resource.

In the refreshed Water Gallery explore the interconnectedness of all water systems, and all life, on Earth. Dive into critical issues such as plastic pollution, climate change and ocean acidification. This new section was developed with our content partner Ocean Wise.

Learn about vulnerable species. See real specimens. Meet some live animals, including freshwater fish, a spotted turtle and our newest residents: moon jellyfish!

Stroll around a real skeleton of a blue whale—the largest animal ever to live!

Learn how you can make a difference to sustain oceans, lakes and rivers for future generations.

One climate. One ocean. One Earth.
