The Ahlgren aquarium was created by the late Molly O. Ahlgren, Sheldon Jackson College professor. Her contribution to education, outreach and research in Southeast Alaska is long standing. Her legacy continues to grow within the Ahlgren aquarium. The licensed facility consists of three touch tanks, five in-wall mounted aquariums, a 800-gallon observation tank, whale bones, and preserved specimens. A workroom houses 37 recirculating tanks that can be used for feeding trials. Adjacent to the aquarium is a rocky-beach shoreline. The room has recently been revamped and now includes an exciting new killer whale skeleton.
