Aquarium Happenings


Family Overnight

Bunk down among the sharks, fish, jellies and other creatures as we host a fun Family Overnight.

After check-in at 6 p.m. and a tasty dinner of chicken tenders, fries and penne, we'll fill your family's evening with a fun- and fact-filled behind-the-scenes tour of the Aquarium, snacks and crafts. "Lights out" is at 10:30 p.m. Participants sleep in sleeping bags (BYOSB) throughout the Aquarium galleries. Air mattresses are allowed for adults.

Breakfast in the morning is at 8:30 a.m., followed by a 9:00 showing of "Backyard Wilderness." You'll be on your way home by 9:45 a.m. on the 20th.

Our Family Overnight is open to children ages 5 and older, with an accompanying parent or caregiver over age 18.  Please let us know of any dietary restrictions.

Advance registration required - please call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206 or register online below.
