Aquarium Happenings


Sensory-Friendly Morning

For some, the Aquarium is a place with too many stimuli. So we're offering this special morning to give guests with sensory-processing differences a fun, comfortable and accepting environment.

During "Sensory-Friendly Mornings," the Aquarium will open at 8 a.m., allowing exclusive Aquarium access prior to the 10 a.m. public opening.

From 8 a.m. to noon, lights in the Aquarium will be lower, and music and other sounds will be turned down or off. There will be a sensory-friendly seal feeding at 8:30 a.m. A designated calming room will also be available. Educators will offer special activities and tactile opportunities.

For families that need to leave within the first 30 minutes, passes will be available to come back and try again another day.

We will also be presenting IMAX movies with lower volume and the theater lights less dim: 9 a.m. "Pandas" and 10 a.m. "Backyard Wilderness"

Pricing on this day is the same as always. Details here
