Palau Aquarium Offers Free Admissions for all the Students in Palau
For this coming year, Palau Aquarium will put special emphasis on students and the use of the aquarium facility to support student learning. Therefore, effective immediately, Palau Aquarium will offer free admissions to all the students in Palau. Any individual student or school groups, will be able to visit the Palau Aquarium for free. Students from all primary, secondary as well as Palau Community College (PCC) are eligible for the free admission.
Palau Aquarium is also updating and making new displays to allow better learning for the students who will visit the aquarium. One of the new displays in the Aquarium is the display on traditional fishing practices of Palau. This display highlights Palau dependence on its reef resources, its traditional management and the importance of managing it for future generations.
Updated research information is also displayed on the new touch panels that allow students and visitors to learn about the different displays at the aquarium and the research project conducted at the Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC). The touch panel enhances students and all visitors experience as they provide a variety of video clips, quizzes and slide shows related to PICRC’s research and marine conservation efforts.
For school tours to fully benefit from the resources at the Palau Aquarium, schools are asked to call for an appointment so Aquarium staff can provide special tours and educational programs for the school group when they visit the aquarium.
Palau Aquarium hosts numerous students and visitors every year for education awareness tours and is proud of its role in the community as an educational facility for locals and visitors to Palau. For school groups reservations, please contact Ines Kintoki at 488-6950 or e-mail
